Safety should be one of your top priorities when installing a fire feature. With that in mind, here are some quick answers to some common fire pit and fire table safety questions we frequently receive at Fire Pits Direct.
Wood fire pits may be simple to install, but they're not always the best option for those looking to install a fire pit at their home. Many urban developments restrict the use of wood fire pits due to safety concerns (an uncontrolled fire can spread dangerously). Beyond that, wood fire pits require the extra hassle of always having wood on hand to burn. This requires extra storage space, and because the wood is often stored outdoors, you'll often find it's wet and difficult to start a fire.
Propane gas fire pitsï¿½are becoming more common in residential settings given their convenient design. However, running new gas lines can be prohibitively expensive and require professional installers to ensure a satisfactory outcome. For this reason, many consumers choose to fuel their fire pits using a standard propane tank.
So, you're looking to build your own DIY gas fire pit but aren't sure about some of the more technical aspects - don't worry! When it comes to gas and custom projects, it's best to ask the experts before you plan anything.
