Steaming Aquasoil?

I recently poured some water on my Aquasoil to wet it for a dry start. When I added water it started steaming! Any idea why? Thx.

Let's not jump to conclusions guys, it could have also been really hot water.

it's dust for sure..hissing as it's dead dry and slight water is being absorbed very fast..common thing..nothing to worry about
