The Product Description Of The Gas Fire Pit Ring
One of the most popular gas fire pit ring is the stainless steel ring. When you are using a gas fire pit, then you will need a minimum of ½ inch gas line. The larger the gas that is being used, the higher the flames would be. However, the longer the line runs the less pressure the fire pit will have. To understand about the exact measurements, you can simply look at the chart for gas pressure specification.
The fire pit ring installation is not difficult; however, you may need to make sure that there will be 3 to 4 inches space between the installed ring and the top of the fire pit. This means that you will have 1 to 2 inches space in order to cover the burner and another 1 to 2 inches of free space before reaching the top of the fire pit.
A good tip for the burner would be to have something that is smaller than the pit. When you are building a fire pit of the size of 36 inches, then you need to use a burner with the size of 24 to 30 inches. When you use the 24 inches fire burner, it will leave around 6 inches of space around the fire pit ring, while if you use a 30 inch burner, then you will have a free space of 3 inches around the ring.
Before installing the fire pit ring, you need to know which is up and which is down. The holes of the fire ring are facing down. Why is that? This position will prevent the dirt and also water from making the holes clogged. On the other hand when the ring is installed with the holes facing down, the gas will disperse before it rises. You may also use the natural gas silica sand because it is great to disperse the flames.
