Is a 24 inch propane fire pit too small?
A 24-inch fire pit works well for smaller gatherings and cozier spots but might feel small in larger areas. Consider a 30 inch fire pit kit for mid-sized backyards.
How to measure for a fire pit cover?
Measure the fire pit's diameter, including any protrusions like spark screens. Also, measure height from the ground to the highest point. Choose a cover slightly larger to accommodate irregular shapes.
Can I use a fire pit on a wooden deck, or should it be placed on a non-combustible surface?
Yes, it's doable but needs caution. For safety, place a heat-resistant pad under the fire pit on the wooden deck to shield it from heat and sparks. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and local rules for using fire pits on wooden surfaces.
What safety precautions should I take when using it on different surfaces?
Put it on non-combustible surfaces like concrete or fire pit pads to avoid heat damage. Keep a safe distance from flammable items and trees. Use a spark screen, have a fire extinguisher or water nearby, and always supervise and fully extinguish the fire when not in use.
