Where can I use my gas fire pit? When can I use my fire pit table?

One of the many major benefits of a gas fire pit is its versatility and functionality. Our gas fire pit tables may be used on your wood deck, composite deck, concrete patio, or even in your backyard on the grass. Make sure to abide by our minimum clearance to combustibles for safety.

Another major advantage of a fire pit is its ability to extend your outdoor season. Our gas fire pits and outdoor fireplaces keep you and your guests comfortable for longer on your patio or deck, thanks to the warmth and glow of the fire. OGC gas fire pit tables can be left outdoors all year long due to our heavy-duty, weather-resistant fire pit materials. As for rain, we designed our fire pit tables to drain water through the gas port holes in the burner, into the burner neck below, and out of the air shutter. Therefore, water will not build up in the burner, saving you time and headache during post-rain outdoor gatherings. Our gas fire pits can even be left out in the winter. However, we recommend you still use one of our protective covers to increase the longevity and appearance of your gas fire pit. We also provide great spring and winter checklists on our Frequently Asked Questions page for recommended seasonal maintenance on your gas fire pit.

How long will a 20 lb LP tank last?

Now that you know where and when you can use your trusted fire pit, how long will the gas fire pit run on a 20 lb liquid propane tank? Typically, you can operate for an average of 8 hours when burning on high and up to 20 hours on low. Since our gas fire pits offer you control of your fire pit flames, it can slightly vary how long one LP tank will last. For example, on a warmer day or when you want subtle ambiance, the flame may be lower. On those chilly days or for those moments when you want your focal point to get that “wow” factor, the flame may be higher and burn more. Either way, your fire pit table is sure to get guests’ attention at your next backyard gathering.
