Best Choice Products Stone Fire Pit Propane Fueled
Before you can use this fire pit, you have to attach the propane tank. Inside the box, you’ll find a hose for connecting the propane tank to the pit. It takes a standard 20-pound propane tank, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing a special tank for the fire pit. The same tanks that fuel propane grills can be used for this fire pit. There’s no place to put the propane tank under the fire pit, though. You’ll need to place the tank nearby. The hose is long enough for you to hide the tank behind the chairs if you wish.
Under the lava rocks, you’ll find a stainless steel burner. This tough material will stand up against high heat and prolonged fires in this fire pit. You’ll need to be careful about allowing this pit to sit out in the rain. It could cause the metal inside to rust.
No Cleaning Required
The beauty of this fire pit is that you don’t have all the cleaning to do after a fire. With a propane-fueled fire pit, there’s no ash or unburnt logs to clean from the bottom of the pit. Once you’re done for the night, simply turn the fire pit off and head into the house. If you need to cover the fire pit, wait until it cools, so you don’t end up burning the cover and starting an unintentional fire.
While you don’t need to clean the fire pit after a fire like you would with one that takes logs, you should make sure you have a good connection occasionally. The hose connector for the tank may loosen when it’s left outdoors. Check it frequently to ensure the connection is holding.
After you’re done with the fire pit for the night, turn the dial on the propane tank to the off position. This will stop any propane from leaking out of the tank.
Spark Ignition Button and Flame Control
On the side of the stone fire pit is a control panel. Once the propane tank is attached to the hose and connected to the fire pit, you can start the pit immediately. Turn the dial to low and push the ignition button. The pit shouldn’t take more than one push to start.
Once you’ve turned on the fire pit using the ignition button, you can raise or lower the flame to the desired level. The maximum output of the fire pit is 30,000 BTUs, which can generate a ton of heat. Keep this in mind when you’re raising and lowering the flame. A higher flame will use more propane, too.
