The fireplace below had a few issues, but easily repaired. Be sure to not let this happen to you! If anyone tries this type of installation, stop them and throw them out!  This fireplace installation was in Palm Springs California. It was done with the 2" method which is fine except for the burner the fireplace shop installed. We will explain as we move forward and show you the finished fireplace.

Below is what we saw when we arrived.

Palm Springs 4

Then we tested the burner we were to replace, oh my!

Palm Springs 5

We uncovered to see what was installed and found a single pipe burner. Great Flame! Another issue was the paint job was hideous which was later repainted. Don't let these ignorant installer tell you their stories. They told the customer the paint would dry to match.

Palm Springs 1

We do approve of a sand filler indoors under lighter colored glass, but the burner must be on top!

Palm Springs 2

Palm Springs 3

Now we installed a double burner and just watch!

Palm Springs 6

Below is what they pawned off on the customer, DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

Palm Springs 7

Palm Springs 8

Much better. Then we took several pictures of the fireplace just because! We did top it off with about 15 lbs of Starfire Base Glass to help hide the sand that was exposed and it worked out just fine.

The fire pit below is in Palm Springs California. We use Azurlite Base Glass Fireplace Glass and a crushed lava filler underneath. There were a few issues which we resolved.
First issue: Don't use polished Mexican Pebbles as they will chase you across the  yard.
Palm Springs 1
Palm Springs 2
Above, second issue, the ring could of been bigger as we installed a triple 30" stainless steel rind.
Below, third issue the plumber installed a 3/8" reducer, why? :-~ The gas comes is with 1/2", the ring is 1/2" so the plumber installed a 3/8" reducer in between the gas supply and the ring. Why in the heck would he do this? Anyway we just installed a 1/2" flex line and the pressure was back and fine.
Palm Springs 3
Palm Springs 4
Cover the wrong material with at least 1 1/2" to 2" of crushed lava.
Palm Springs 5
Palm Springs 6
And pour the Azurlite Base Glass Fire Pit Glass

We never were sent pictures of the fire pit burning, but we did test it during our installation.

The fireplace below is in Palm Springs California. We used Starfire Base Glass over a 2"
 bed of sand. We will narrate as we go:

Here is the fireplace with the screen removed

Palm  Springs Install 1

Palm  Springs Install 2

Now we remove the doors, very simple. One screw on each side at the top generally removes the doors.

Palm  Springs Install 3

Below, remove the end of the flex line and screw it on to the stub out coming out of the wall.

Palm  Springs Install 4

Below, now attach the flex line from the burner to the stub out. Keeping the flex line curled under the burner.

Palm Springs Install 5

Below, pour in as much sand (on lighter colors) as you would like to raise the glass bed.

Palm  Springs Install 6

Look how easy! Even my installers can do it! Bring the burner to the top of the sand so it can operate properly. With crushed lava you can keep the burner below the surface. Keep your sand/ lava at least 3" to 4" away from the front!

Palm  Springs Install 7

Pour the glass and you're done! Our typical install where we don't have to paint is about 12 minutes!

Palm  Springs Install 8

Looks awesome!

The fireplaces below are located in Palm Desert California. These were both filler with crushed lava (3" to 4" each) and then topped with a Bronze Base Glass. We then added 6" Gray Fire Balls.  We will explain as we proceed:

This was the outdoor fireplace. 38" "H" burner was installed.

Bronze and Fireballs 1

We then poured in about 4" of crushed lava filler.

Bronze and Fireballs 2

Then we poured in about 1 1/2" of Bronze Base Glass.

Bronze and Fireballs 3

Then we stacked in the 6" Gray Fire Balls.  We couldn't get any burning pictures because it was to bright outdoors.

Bronze and Fireballs 4

The fireplace below was indoors in the family room. We started with about 3" to 4" of filler (crushed lava). We used a 38" "H" burner again in this fireplace as well.

Bronze and Fireballs 5

Then we tested the flame pattern to insure the flames were not hitting the walls.

Bronze and Fireballs 6

Then we added the 6" Gray Fire Balls to the top of the Bronze Base Glass.

 The fireplace below was installed by Scott Hansford of Palm Springs California.
We made an aluminum border to separate the glass from the outer stone layer. This helped in design and saved on glass as well. We will explain as we move on:
Do you see how high the gas connection is? We sent a 90 degree elbow to point the gas line down and then added enough filler to the bottom of the gas line to conceal it under the glass.
Scott Hansford 1
The metal border is installed holding the outer layer of rock in place.
Scott Hansford 2
Scott Hansford 3
They didn't like the post in the fireplace so we cut a mirror to preview if in fact they wanted it covered at all. If they would of wanted it covered we would of made piece of super 8 stainless steel (highly polished) to cover the post. The mirror was only a temporary visual. DON'T USE REGULAR GLASS NEAR ANY FIRE!  So if you are not sure, preview it. The glass we used was a Bronze Base Glass with Gold Base Glass and Clear Diamonds.

The fire pit below was purchased locally and then we converted it to burn propane without soot! The colors used were:
 Starfire Base Glass,
and topped with 1 lb of Copper Ruby Red Topper. I guess he wanted a lot of color.

Here is what is looked like when he started. These manufactures have no imagination!

The fireplace below is a direct vent conversion. The most important issue to address here is to NEVER increase the amount of fuel that your fireplace was designed to burn.

We will explain as we move forward:

This is the burner in this particular direct vent fireplace.

The pictures below are from Tom and Maria and they installed Bronze Base Glass with lava as a filler.

We would like to share their comments:

From:Tom and Maria


Ed:

Sorry it took me so long to get the pictures off to you. Anyway, we are digging the new look in the fireplace. You and your staff have been wonderful, from the first phone call to the last question. The handful of times I called for clarification or assistance it was about making sure I was comfortable, not once did I feel as though you guys left me hanging. As you promised during that first call, this really was one of easiest do it yourself projects I have ever completed. Thanks, you guys made it easy. I feel fortunate to have landed with you and your organization.

The next several fireplace pictures are from Andy Peeke from New Jersey.  Andy did the self installation with his wife. Almost a complete fireplace make over once you see. They use a Starfire Base Glass, Yellow Amber Topper and Black Topper.

The house is very nice, the fireplace right now is "YUK"!

Andy Peeke 9

YUK again!

Andy Peeke 8

We used a double "H" to give a wider flame pattern as you will see.

 

Andy Peeke 2

We also used a sand base under the Starfire Base Glass and just up to the burners, not covering them.

Just so you know, this is a two sided fireplace.

Now 2" of Starfire Base Glass.

The fireplace pictures below will show how simple and easy it actually is to install.

Here are a few comments from J.D.Harriman

John. Harriman@dlapiper.com

Subject:  More proof of how easy it is to do with Moderustic providing the materials!


 We are so happy with our FireGlass fireplaces (we have 3!).  It has literally changed our lives in that we can use our fireplaces anytime we want with no worry about
cleaning ashes later on.  Even better, the look is so superior to fake logs.  All of our friends have been wowed by the look.  We always send them your way.
 
Best regards,

Here we go:

001

Above you can see how nice it WAS! YUK!

Below they painted, we always recommend painting the lines first and then painting each brick separately. Using this technique you can eliminate spots.

002

Install the burner. We usually recommend curling the flex line from underneath, but this works as well if your flex line is long enough. The reason for the flex line: it allows you to move the burner forward to prevent the flames from hitting the back wall.

003

Below the lava has been poured and test the flame pattern.

004

Pour the glass from the front going to the back. You can use a cup or pour from the bucket.

005

Turn it on and you're done!

006

The glass that was used is:

Starfire Base Glass,

1 lb of Gold Base Glass,

Amber Diamonds,

Ice Ice Ice Topper for one simple but nice fireplace!

 ventless conversion was from Eric at Neutral Interiors.

We built a pan to recess into the floor of the fireplace and to access the controls Eric cut a hole on the left side of the fireplace for easy access in the event it had to be reset or turned off.
