Buyers Guide For Natural Gas Burners
- Install approved media up to 3" above burner
- Gas logs and large lava rock can be installed on top of media
- How to save $ when using fire glass. Install filler glass or crushed lava rock as a filler material up to 1" above burner and use preferred glass to cover filler material. Natural Gas Rings Only. Filler glass is our most affordable glass due to the large volume manufactured.
Buyers Guide for Liquid Propane (LP) Gas Burners
- Install fire ring with holes facing up
- Do not install more than 1/4" of glass or small lava rock above burner holes. Do not block burner holes
- Large lava rock (3" or larger) and gas logs can be used as long as burner holes are not blocked
- Due to sooting (a residue which occurs from LP gas burning) we suggest using black glass rather than colored glass
- When designing and constructing fire feature be sure to provide adequate ventilation
Warning - For your safety
- *** Wet lava rock can explode when heated. Allow fire pit to burn at least 45 minutes or until lava rock is dry before coming within 15 feet of fire during start up. Consider covering fire pit to keep lava rock dry to prevent this occurrence or use lava rock 3" in diameter or larger.
- *** LP gas is a heavy gas. Applying too much media over burner holes may create back pressure and gas leakage resulting in gas pooling in fire pit.
- *** A minimum of two ventilation openings 18 sq. in. each and orientated 180 degrees apart must be installed at base of enclosure for LP gas fire pits
