Firepit Maintenance and Safety

Colder weather is coming, and sitting by the fire is a great way to sit back, relax and enjoy the outdoors. We have a few tips and tricks on how to properly take care of your gas fire pit for years of enjoyment.


Burn only gas: It's not safe to burn food, accelerants or other objects in your gas fire pit. Putting things other than gas in your fire pit can potentially lead to an uncontrollable fire.


Keep it covered: Keeping your fire pit covered is always a good idea. Doing this will help keep leaves, pollen and insects out. Covering your fire pit will also protect it from extreme weather such as rain, excessive heat or snow.


Clean regularly: Keep your firepit clean with soap and water or a solution that is recommended on the manual for your firepit. Taking care of your fire pit keeps unwanted particles out and will make your firepit last. Allow your fire pit to cool before cleaning. Rapid temperature changes can lead to cracks.


Monitor gas line: After using your firepit, always remember to shut off the gas. It is also a good idea to regularly check for leaks and be cautious of how your fire pit smells. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, contact a professional to ensure the safety of your firepit.
