Fire Pit and Surface Safety
The surface that your fire pit sits on is very important. If you are on a combustible(wood) or composite material, a barrier will be needed. I recommend the use of the DeckProtect system. Most Fire Pits get very hot on the bottom side, be very careful. Make sure that you keep at least feet from vinyl siding, as the heat will distort or melt it.
Do not use any gasoline or other combustible materials to get your fire started, this will lead to a trip to the local hospital.
Do not leave a fire that is burning, even with the ember guard on. The fall is when most people use their fire pits and this is when the most dried leaves on on the ground, easy to start a fire that can get out of control quickly.
Be careful when small children are around, they do not know how much it will hurt if they fall into the embers or touch the side of a hot fire pit.
Some people will indulge in there favorite adult beverage, too much can lead to trouble around the fire and friends that will dare you to do something silly for You Tube or Facebook.
I hope that you have a better understanding of what to look for and what is available in Patio Fire Pit Designs. Size and how big the fire bowl is very important. Most of these will only be able to cook hot dogs and marshmallows, one does have a grate for cooking. Having a design that works with your outdoor space is what is most important.
