The popularity of fire pits is growing rapidly have become the most sought after accessory to have in your back yard. The variety now available on the market today is seemingly endless, so finding the right one for you and your budget has never been easier. First off, before you make any decisions, check with your local authorities regarding fire features in your area. There may operational requirements, regulations regarding the type of fire feature, construction materials, dimensions and location as well as restrictions on what can be burnt. Make sure you are aware of these before you spend your hard earned money or start work.
HEAT: Generally, heat is provided from an outside source, such as a match or spark, and then the fire produces enough of its own heat to be self-supporting. If we reduce the temperature of a burning substance below its kindling point, the fire in all fire pits will go out. Sometimes enough heat is generated within substances, such as in a pile of oily rags, to cause them to burst into flames. This is called spontaneous combustion. Certain bacteria in moist hay can cause the temperature to rise rapidly, causing the hay to burn. These sources of heat cannot be ignored when considering fire prevention and safety, and in deciding what to burn in your outdoor fire pit.
Permanent Fire Pits are are fixed structures, either built in place using long lasting materials such as bricks and mortar, rocks and stone or are so heavy that moving them is not an option. You have the advantage of been able to design them to blend in with your existing patio or yard, even matching the materials already in place. The only limitations for this is your own imagination. If you don’t have the budget or building skills for elaborate projects then the easy option is to buy a pre-designed permanent fire pit kit that you can easily put together yourself. If even that is more than you fancy doing then buy a ready made fire pit.
