Gas Firepit Safety 1. You can help prevent accidental fires by keeping the area around your firepit free from combustible materials. This can include cleaning materials like mops, brooms, newspapers but more importantly, gasoline and cleaning fluids. 2. Inspect and clean burners regularly. Insects such as spiders can actually nest in the burners and block air flow. If this happens a fire can start behind the valve panel. 3. Be sure to keep electric cords and power supplies away from the fire pit. 4. Dont use your gas fire pit in a windy area. If you need to do so create a windbreak. 5. Never line a gas firepit with tin foil. 6. Dont use your firepit as a storage area for flammable materials or plastic items which can ignite. 7. Never leave children unattended around fire pit when in use.
A firepit can be a beautiful addition to any yard. There are many different types of firepits available that are made of many different materials. One type of firepit that you will definitely want to consider is a copper firepit. Copper is a very attractive metal, but it is practical as well. Copper holds heat very well, it is an excellent conductor, meaning that you can use less wood. Another thing to keep in mind with copper is that it is a very durable metal. While some metals will corrode or rust, copper can withstand the elements. Copper firepits are practical as well as beautiful.
Another thing that you will want to consider after you have bought your new copper firepit is a grill or a grate. Check your instructions before purchasing a grate, if your firepit wasnt made for cooking then you wont want to buy a grate. It doesnt make any sense to take chance with something like fire. If your firepit is made for grilling, your instruction manual will tell you the right size grate for your particular model. There are a couple of other things that you might want to consider buying to also go with your copper firepit. If you bought a set it should come with tools for the fire, but if it didnt you will probably want to purchase tools. You will want something that you can use in the fire if you need to stir the wood. Another nice accessory is a cover. Copper can withstand the elements, but wet ashes can be very messy and a cover can save you that hassle. Finally, some people like to have a rug to place their new firepit on. If you decide that you want to use a rug, make sure it is fire resistant. You dont want to take any chances.
The style is important too, as it should fit the style of the wedding. There are casual design pits as well as modern and more formal. If youre grilling, there are outdoor fireplaces that allow for cooking, and table style pits that give you space right beside the fire to keep drinks and utensils. Choose a design and size that works for your number of guests. Most pits allow access from any side, which is ideal in this type of large gathering. The number of guests will dictate the size or number you will need. Decide if you want one or two large pits, or several smaller pits. This will depend on the number of guests and the possibility of family members that may not get along. In the latter case, youll definitely want more pits in order to keep certain guests separate.
