Does lava rock bore you to tears? Let's turn that frown upside down and make an eye-popping statement with beautiful media that is propane-friendly! It's a known fact that propane is heavier than natural gas. It will sink to the bottom of your feature, and even small pieces of fire glass will prevent it from circulating. This can lead to dangerous situations, which is why lightweight, porous lava rock is highly recommended as your fire media for propane burning features. However, with our line of stainless steel fire pit ornaments, you can jazz up those rustic stones while still maintaining safety precautions!
Before the summer comes to an end, it's a good idea to check for problems and get them taken care of before your local gas professional is up to his/her eyeballs in service calls for heating appliances. Fireside Expressions is here once again to arm you with helpful tips and information on how you can check to see if your gas connections are in safe working order! We'll explain how to perform a simple test to determine if your quarter-turn shut off valve is leaking or not.
Propane is an extremely efficient fuel source for your outdoor product, but did you know that if you lack the proper components during installation that your feature can display soot over time? Many people associate this black residue with the burn process of a wood fire, but propane is perfectly capable of producing soot if your feature isn't configured accurately. Join us for a special blog post on this matter and get a dose of #WednesdayWisdom!
