- Spotix Penta HPC Match Lit Fire Pit Burner Kits
The Spotix Penta HPC Match Lit Fire Pit Burner Kits by Spotix provides high quality fire pit components necessary to complete your gas fire pit project. The unique Penta shaped burner is manufactured by HPC and constructed from high quality 304 stainless steel; each Penta burner features staggered burner ports, a 1/2" (or 3/4" for HC) female gas inlet, and is neatly machine welded to produce a seamless and durable product.
This burner can be installed DIY or by a professional installer and can be used for either Natural Gas or Propane applications; for LP applications a propane conversion kit, which includes an air mixer, coupler & nipple, will be necessary. The burner should be at least 6" smaller than the inside dimensions of your enclosure and must be installed so the burner ports face upwards. The kit components include a stainless steel flex line, quarter-turn ball valve, decorative flange & key, and stainless steel fittings; the fully assembled kit will complete the burner assembly from the burner to the shut off valve.
- Stainless Steel Construction - Heavy duty 304 stainless steel guards against rusting and ensures a long-lasting product
- 3, 9, 12 Burner Ports - Unique to the penta burner, holes are drilled at the 3, 9, and 12 o'clock positions on the tube for a broader, more complete flame
- Standard & High Capacity - Burner rings are available in both standard 1/2" and high 3/4" capacity
- Natural Gas or Propane - Burner kit is NG ready, with LP conversion kit available; gas inlet is raised to prevent water entering gas line
- Burner Pan - Stainless steel burner pan helps complete the installation of your fire pit kit
- Includes - Penta burner, flex line, fittings, ball valve, and decorative flange with 3" key
- What more do you need? Depending on your project you might need installation collars, a flange extension, a longer key, a regulator, vents, and fire media - check them out in the Accessories tab above

What to Consider When Building a Gas Fire Pit:
- Gas Supply - Before you begin designing your fire pit, first determine your gas supply
- Both Natural Gas and Propane may be used - Supply Pressure and BTU ratings need to be regulated for both
- For Natural Gas: Supply Pressure should be set between 3.5" - 7" Water Column
- For Propane*: Supply Pressure should be set between 8" - 11" Water Column
- *If using a 20 lb. propane tank, consider the maximum BTU output of a tank that size ranges from about 90,000 - 125,000 BTU† and a regulator must be used
- †The BTU rating of the 20 pound tank limits your burner options to sizes that are rated for 125,000 or fewer BTU
- Fire Pit Burner - The shape and size of your fire pit burner can be choosed after determining your gas supply
- Choose a burner that's at least 6" smaller than the inside dimension of your enclosure - that's 3" between the edge of the burner and the inside edge of the pit
- Fire Pit Pan - Recommended for use with all fire pit burners, but required for use in propane applications
- A pan can be flat or "bowl" style in order to accommodate your construction - it should be installed at least 3-4" below the top surface of your enclosure
- The burner pan separates the air mixer from the burner in propane applications, but in all constructions it helps with water drainage and ventillation
- Flange Extension - In many cases, the shut-off valve will be located inside the fire pit - if your enclosure walls are thicker than 3" it may be necessary to use a flange extension and a longer key
- Ventilation - For all fire pit burners, adequate ventilation is required
- The recommended amount of ventilation is 36in² - or (2) 18in² vents on two opposing sides to create proper airflow
- Installation Collars - Are designed to simplify the installation of a fire pit pan
- Our flexible installation collars can bend for round enclosures, and can be anchored in with concrete screws
- Fire Media - Is the final step to finishing a gas fire pit
- Both lava rock and fire glass may be used to complete your fire pit, the choice between the two is purely aesthetic

Beautiful flame on high Review by running man
We love our Penta, 24-Inch Burner. Our only complaint is like the following review, it hisses when the valve is set to low, the hiss goes away when the valve is cranked all the way open.
Any thoughts on how to resolve this?
Thanks. (Posted on 5/3/2016)
Overall very Happy Review by Dan
This was exactly what I expected. Everyone that's seen the penta burner really likes it. I did need to buy one more flex line to hook it up to the gas line. Seems like it's good quality, however, I won't know till we see how the burner holds up over the years. (Posted on 12/28/2015)
Overall Satisfied Review by Bones
I am satisfied with the product and value. My only complaint is the hissing noise when the gas is on low. The noise goes away when the ball valve is completely open. (Posted on 9/24/2015)
penta burner is the one to go with! Review by stanley & karen
what a great product! we were converting our wood fire pit into a gas fire pit and I was so nervous that it wasn't going to have the same ambiance of a real fire pit but it is actually so much better! we don't smell like wood smoke afterwards and it turns on so easily. we use it more than we used our wood burning fire pit just because it is so easy to turn on and off. It gives off a great flame on all of the burner holes. We added some copper fire glass to it and it looks wonderful! Thanks so much for the assistance in picking out this kit. (Posted on 5/28/2015)
A little more involved then portrayed by video Review by Cats Fan
The video showing how to assemble the kit was very helpful BUT it needed to explain a little more clearly how involved drilling your 1 1/2" hole through the block was going to be and that the extender was pretty much a must. I ended up having to piece together a extender with parts purchased at Lowe's. I was told by the customer service rep that I would be able to purchase the extender part at Lowe's or Home Depot. Neither had that exact piece. And the video did not mention that you were going to need a longer key then the one that comes with the kit to be able to turn the burner on when using the block in the video. I had to order the longer key which was an additional $18 to be able to turn the unit on. So bottom line: if the video had included that additional information I think I would have been 100% satisfied with my purchase instead of 75%. (Posted on 5/26/2015)
impressed Review by Maq
easy to install and great to see the finished product. Truly impressed by the flame this kit gives off. (Posted on 4/29/2015)
Great Customer Service! Review by Southern
I had little knowledge about what I needed to purchase for my fire pit project, until I came across this website. Within two rings I was able to talk directly to technical support to help me understand which kit I needed. Great customer service and product knowledge! (Posted on 2/18/2015)

If I have a 31" cement pot ( with 2.75" thick walls) that's only 12" deep do I need a burner pan? I am going to use natural gas. I was thinking of only using lava rock at the low level and finishing the coverage with the ceramic river rock. Also - should I get the 24" or 18" star burner?
With natural gas you won't have to purchase a pan if you do not want to, though it's still recommended. It's recommended that whatever size your ID is, your burner is 6" smaller.
I'm looking at a Penta burner with the pan. Does the pan have a nipple for the burner to attach to? I'm asking as it looks like there is over a 1" hole in the pan according to the description. Other pans you sell have the nipple.
This particular pan does not have a nipple to save in cost. We do sell other pans with nipples if that's something you'd like, but it makes no difference for performance or construction to have the nipple - once the burner is covered with media it will be pretty stable.
Since this unit is not CSA approved, is it legal to use in Canada? Is it UL certified? Will a licensed gas installer install the unit if it is not CSA approved?
This unit is neither CSA certified nor UL listed - we do offer a few kits that are either UL or CSA certified. Typically, Canadian installers will not install these kits unless they are CSA certified.
