"Spell that conjures a stream of water from the end of the wand."
—Description[src]

The Aqua Eructo Charm (Aqua Eructo) was a charm that could be used to create a spout of water from the tip of the wand. The intensity of the water flow could be anything from a thin fountain to an immense, powerful and destructive jet.[1]

History

While impersonating Alastor Moody throughout the 1994-1995 school year, Bartemius Crouch Jr provided extra lessons for his fourth years on this charm, among other spells in his Defence Against the Dark Arts classes.[1]

Information on this spell can be found in a certain spellbook, a copy of which was used by Barty Crouch Jr in his DADA lessons to help teach his students the spell.[1]

Effects

This water could be used for a variety of purposes, such as extinguishing fires (including dragon fire), extinguishing the flames within Fumos Bat Flamers, cooling off fiery beasts like Fire Dwelling Salamanders and Blast-Ended Skrewts , although it was most often used to extinguish flames, as above noted.[1]

This spell worked particularly well with the similarly water-based Ebublio Jinx when both used in tandem when dealing with certain fiery beasts.[1]

Known practitioners

Etymology

"Aqua" is Latin for "water"[2], and "eructo" is Latin for "erupt"[3]; therefore, the incantation, roughly translated, means "water erupts". This is suitable given the effect of the spell, which is for large, powerful jets of water to erupt from the wand.

Behind the scenes

  • This charm appears only in the fourth video game, and does not appear anywhere else in the franchise. Therefore, it may have been meant as an early form for Aguamenti, before the latter came into use.
  • It is possible that this spell is the extinguishing spell or related to it.
