By placing the fire pit away from the flow of traffic and raising the fire pit from the ground you will make it hard for anyone to accidentally walk or fall in. Choose a location for the fire pit that will reduce as much as possible the effect of smoke on neighbouring properties, or even you own or that matter. If this an issue then go with a gas burning fire pit as they do not emit smoke. If children are a factor, incorporate a barrier such as a low wall surrounding the pit that will ensure they are kept a safe distance from the flames. Some portable fire pits are designed with a protective glass or Pyrex shield. This also helps limit the wind’s affect on the flames.
The fire pits popularity is on the rise, many people seem to prefer to have a fire pit at their back yard then invest in bigger and more complicated fire holding elements, the choice is clear since most fire pits are very easy to maintain and take care of, and they do not cost a lot of money, some even produce their own fire pits, letting their imaginations run wild, and their creative side flourish. The summer had encouraged many home owners to seek a fire pit that will serve their needs, some like to use a fire pit as a garden feature and as a source of light in the evenings and night, while they spend time in the backyard, and some use the fire pit for cooking and smoking meat, which does not prevent its use as an element of light as well.
The burning process can be illustrated by an examination of the flame of a candle. The wax does not burn directly, but, rather, gas given off by the heated wax travels up the wick and burns. Prove this by blowing out a candle that has been burning for some time. Then pass a lighted match through the trail of smoke rising from the wick. A flame will travel down the smoke to the wick and relight the candle. There are three areas in the flame produced by fire pits: (1) the dark inner area of no combustion and (2) an intermediate layer of incomplete combustion, composed of hydrogen and carbon monoxide that gradually work their way to (3) the outside cone of complete combustion.
Maintenance - This depends on the material it is made from and the fuel it uses. Gas fire burners and valves must be cleaned regularly to avoid blockages by insect nests and dirt buildup. Although this is easy to do, its is advisable to get them inspected every so often by a professional. A well built wood burning fire pit should require very little maintenance over the years other than emptying it of ashes. If you are using it for cooking then additional cleaning may be required to remove build up of grease and residue. Some metal fire pits will require further maintenance to keep them rust free and looking their best. Using a weather resistant cover is a good idea to increase longevity. Aesthetics - Fire pits of any kind are an attractive addition to any back yard or patio. Gas fire places are great if you are leaning toward a more contemporary look. You can cover the burners with lava rocks, treated tumbled river rocks, fireplace logs or fire glass. Fire glass comes an amazing array of colours, it can provide the impact that takes your fire pit to a spectacular level. Ecological impact - Fire pits may be magical but there is not avoiding the fact that they are used more for pleasure than necessity. So if their ecological impact is important to you, choose natural gas and propane as they are clean burning. After all there is no doubt that wood smoke is a pollutant.
