More Fireplace and Fire Pit Pictures-

Joe Ramirez contacted us with a few fire pit problems, which we helped him fix.  When building a propane fire pit, keep in mind the following:

  1. Don't put your controls under the base plate, you want to make sure that if you ever need to service the unti you will be able ot have access to it.
  2. The Air mixer needs to be located in its proper position so that base of the fire pit wont fill up with gas and create a bomb.
  3. Again air ventalation is critical when it comes to propane.

Here is what Joe had to say...

"Were all good, I spoke to Morgan very helpful, you got a great crew.  Works like a champ.  Thanks again."

This is Brian's fireplace.  He cleared it out and dry-cleaned with a steel brush. getting it ready for a fresh coat of high-heat fireplace paint.  Thank you Brian for sending us your photos; helps all our customers better understand the easy self installation process.  

Brian Pokrzywa

Brian prepared the area around the fireplace, to assure no fireplace paint would get into any unwanted areas.  He then sprayed the inside with a matte black paint

Brian Pokrzywa Brian Pokrzywa


He then laid a bed of regular playground sand from his local home department and placed his indoor fireplace burner above it before pouring Gray and Pyrite Gray fireglass.

The fireplace below is in Beverly Hills California.
We use a black base glass with Clear Ice Ice Ice on top. The customer wanted to use their original burner to keep the flames localized in the center area. This fireplace goes from "Log Ugly" to very nice and contemporary in about an hour. If you really take a look at your fireplace place in the beginning it almost looks like an incinerator from long ago.

The fire pit below is a custom propane fire pit. We use perforated aluminum for the wall construction and the pit is single wall construction with a 1 1/2" deep pan on top. We installed a 12" double stainless steel ring for the burner. The rest was done by Bill Moss in Texas. Very nice job Bill!. We built the pit to Bills specs which were 26" x 26" x 20" tall so he could finish it to the size he wanted. The pit shown is one of our proto types and not the actual pit used.

The next fire pit was designed by and built for Kevin Leys of Chicago. He did a great job and you decide.

First he started with a single wall construction fire box with a pan on the top

The fire pit below was another failed attempt from a company called Fire By Design in Nevada. They helped these customers design a propane fire pit with an electronic ignition (fair at best) and with the lack of knowledge about propane here is the failed attempt. The ring was to placed above the glass according to the manufacture (wrong!). There was no air mixer/ venturi let alone calibrating for proper air mixture to insure a clean burn. The company would not even return any calls to the customer and we repaired the system and made it work properly. This home was on the beach in South Florida.

nasty 2

Several thing went wrong here, wrong filler (lava was too large), Bad cage design over the pilot light/ ignition, they buried the ignition system under the ring and glass, the ring was left on the surface, no air mixer, no customer support, the ring that was supplied was a steel ring for outdoors, wrong! This should of been a stainless steel ring and a strong recommendation for a cover because it was at the beach! We would of also given the option of a #304 stainless steel marine grade ring. We also manufacture our our rings as well.

The fireplace below is in Palm Desert California and was a self install with a crushed lava base, clear over the lava, starfire on top of the clear and topped with amber diamonds and a splash of our gold . It looked great until they found the burner was too close to the back which burned the back wall. I don't know if this was repaired as we did send paint and instructions on how to prevent this in the future. The fireplace looked great except for the "skid mark" on the back wall.

About our diamonds, they are made of crystal and when you see them in the fireplace you actually see the fire reflection reflecting the flame backward as if the diamonds were melting from the inside.

The fire pit below has a azurlite base glass with aquamarine blue topper, hyacinth topper, citrine topper and copper ruby red topper. This is a propane fire pit in Texas. Our dealer installed this glass and explained to the customer to eliminate the soot from the propane we had to lean the mixture with air. The customer asked the burner manufacture to come out and inspect the fire pit. The manufacture told the customer the glass was defective and this was causing the soot. The manufacture didn't even know how to get a clean burn on their own product! Needless to say the fire pit is still producing clouds of soot and the customer now knows the manufacture didn't even have a clue. The smell in propane is an added oil to the liquid propane so it can be identified. The oil will still burn off as the fuel is used but we lean the fuel by introducing 6 parts of air to the fuel to virtually eliminate the soot from the fire. Below are before and after pictures of the propane fire pit.
pit 1
pit 2
As you can see below the fire pit was creating soot long before we even started. The glass had nothing to do with burner as the burner was in the middle of the glass. The manufactures of most of these propane fire pit and fireplace burners don't even have a clue on what they are doing so please be careful. In this case the manufacture didn't know how to get a clean burn so there fore he said it can't be done! You be the judge, what looks better?

The fireplace below is in Palm Springs California.
This is first for us because we have heard of this, but no one has ever sent us pictures! Well here they are! We installed Giant Logs on a base of amber topper with about 20 lbs of light amber topper. Here it is and you be the judge.

Below we installed 2 triple 30" "H" burners.

The fireplace was about 3" deep and we were installing amber glass so we used a sand base to build up to the logs but you would still be able to see inside of the grate where the flame would start.

The fire pit below is in Palm Springs and the customer poured about 350 lbs of lava and we topped it with 80 lbs of our 1/4" crushed lava to keep the glass from falling through the larger lava rock. We used a 50" stainless steel "H" burner and topped that with 120 lbs of azurlite.

The fireplace below is a before and after and a "how to" make it low and lean. A more contemporary look. This is a self install by Rich Kamins and one very nice job!.

The fire pit below is in the Palace of Qatar and this was commissioned for the King of Qatar. The fire pit is a propane/ butane fueled fire pit and it was installed by Gasco of Qatar. They didn't understand the glass so they opted to use lava rock. Now they (the King) have ordered the glass and if we can get the pictures we will post them.
