We are a design and build company. We supply many contractors and DIY home owners with everything you'll need to build the pit your visualizing. We've been doing this for quite some time doing many projects from coast to coast and we have assembled different types of kits that are basically drop-in, hook-up gas and or electric and your done. These kits are manufactured to specs to fit your fire pit. We keep the idea of future maintenance in mind when designing your fire pit kit.
You can build the fire pit any which way you want but keep in mind the drawings below. What I mean is you can build the pit using the materials of your choice to get the look your after. Our part is to make your fire pit work the way you want it to work. There are a few options.
Match Lit Fire Pit
The first option and being the cheapest is using a match to light your
pit. You turn on the gas valve and drop a match and the fire is lit. THis
is the cheapest and easiest but the down fall is that when the wind blows
out the fire the gas is still on and you will have to re-light or make
sure the gas gets shut off. There's a drawing below about the makings
of a gas lit kit.
Notice the vents and drainage. These are very important and do not let them get ignored.
Remotely Operated Gas Fire Pits
The next drawing below is using a remote controlled gas valve. When I
say remotely operated system I mean this could be methods of operating
the valve from remote location such as a wall switch or timer. This can
be connected to swimming pool remote controls as well.
You see it's the same pit but it has 120 vac wired inside. Several things to pay close attention and this is the drain and the vents. Drainage is something that has to be done right the first time. The fix in the event your drainage doesn't work will be expensive. The proper ventilation is a must for safety reason as well as proper functions of the fire pit. We use the state of the art gas components for our gas valves. These are the best in the industry. And very easy to install and service. For more information call Jim @ 817.946.6463
But you will notice the vents are at or almost grade level. THis makes for a discreet vent and we supply these in stainless or copper. And it doubles as a plan "B" drain in case you screwed up the original drain. It happens so plan on a plan b.
In these pictures you have seen that the pan is sitting on a wall of brick. We can do this another way by putting legs under the primary pan as shown below. This makes it easier to fit if the pit is already built and you want everything to drop in place, make the connections and your done. We can supply you with everything you need.
