What size gas line do you need for a fire pit?
It is important to match the BTU rating of your fire pit to the source gas line. Then, it’s a matter of calculating the diameter of the pipe based on the distance from the source to your fire pit. There are charts available to make these calculations, but this is important enough that we recommend you work with a licensed plumber for your gas line.
How much does it cost to run a gas line to a fire pit?
To run a gas line to your fire pit, we estimate the cost based on the linear length of the pipe and the difficulty of the installation, i.e. how easy is the access and the space we’re working in. You’ll typically pay about $20 per foot. So, a 25-foot pipe to your gas fire pit will run about $500.
Do you need a gas line for a gas fire pit?
Yes, you will need a permanent gas line installed for your natural gas fire pit. A professional plumber can install this and ensure that everything is sealed properly and meets local safety codes.
Can you have a fire pit over a gas line?
The location of your fire pit comes with several safety considerations. It should be at least 25 feet from your home and 10 feet away from the property line. It should also not be located directly underneath power lines. They also need to have an emergency shut-off valve. Finally, a fire pit can be installed over a gas line. A gas fire pit is built to insulate itself.
What is a good BTU for an outdoor fire pit?
The typical range for a fire pit BTU rating is from 40,000 to 150,000 BTUs. But that number is purely subjective and depends on many factors including our local temperatures, the distance you’ll be seated from the fire, etc. Talk to your fire pit dealer to get help selecting the best fire pit for your backyard.
