Fire Pit Installation'

Here Are Some Customer Pictures of Some of Our FireGlass Fire Pit.

Here is a classic example of a traditional lava fire pit before it undergoes the conversion process to a contemporary Fire Glass Fire Pit.

metal fire ring for fire pits with fireglass

Step 1 - Fill the outdoor firepit with lava rock (crushed 1/4" 3/8") over 3/8" 1/2" crushed. Remember the larger is under the smaller to keep the fire glass from falling through.

Step 2 - Then we install an extending flex line, so that we can connect the burner ring closer to the surface. Remember you don't want to leave the ring at the bottom. (Well thats unless you want an explosion or if you want to get rid of the significant other!?)

Step 3 - The extenidng flex liine is then attached to a burner ring.

Step 4 - Pour more crushed lava to make the desired shape of the fire pit and test burn for flame pattern.

Step 5 - Now for the best part - Adding the Fire Glass! This particular fire pit used Starfire base and a few other colors, which you we will list below.

Step 6 - Adding a Creative pattern with colorful Glass Fire toppers. Below we are using Azurlite, Scarlet Topper, Red Topping, Ice, Copper Blue Topper,and Copper Blue which is a chameleon as when it gets hot it turns green and when it cools it turns back to blue!

EXAMPLE #2 Of A Patio Fire Pit Using Fire Pit Glass.

Here we are showing you how to properly install fireglass into a firepit We recommend starting with less and then you can always add more if you need to.The pictures below are of a self install fire pit with 1/2" to 3/4" of crushed lava rock for the bottom of the ring and Clear base.

fire pit ring

If you want a higher center then pour a little more filler on top of the ring.

adding lava rock to fire pits

Now we will pour the crushed lava rock (1/4" to 3/8") over the filler as this will stop the glass from falling through the lava rock.

fire rock to fire pits

Finish shaping the lava rock and getting to pour the glass.

shaping fire lava rock in a fire pit

This is a 36" fire pit which requires 56 lbs for a 1" cover and 80 lbs for a 1 1/2" cover. We used the 1" method, 56 lbs which as you can see works just fine and no you can't see though the glass.   But keep in mind the less glass over the crushed lava rock - the more likely someone can disturb the top layer and then the lava rock could show through.

fire crystals for patio fire pits

The second step will be to add color and Fire GlassToppers.  Don’t be fooled by someone trying to get you to purchase more than you actually need. We recomment using a 1”, 1½” or even the 2” method. Give us a call and we can help guide you in the right direction.

EXAMPLE #4 Building A Natural Gas Fire Pit Using Fire Glass.

The next fire pit was designed and built by Kevin Leys of Chicago. He did a great job. First he started with a single wall construction fire box with a pan on the top.

Then it was framed for exterior plywood or you could use metal studs and wonder board.

The gas valve was located to the outer framed wall.

This is a natural gas fire pit. It was tested as soon as it turned dark, fun!

Now we add the crushed lava rock and glass over that. There are many sub materials you can use as a filler. Just ask.

Great back yard by the way! Chicago, remember?


Now we start to apply the tile for the finishing touch.

EXAMPLE #4 Another Custom Made Fire Pit Using Fire Glass.

We are going to show you how to build a custom fire on glass outdoor fire pit for your deck or backyard. This was built by Glenn Harvey of British Columbia. This first picture is the frame he had started with. You can make one from metal studs, aluminum studs, etc. Anything non flammable.

Custom fire pit designs

Wrap it with wonder board or durock/ cement board.

hand made outdoor fire pits

Below you can also wrap it with wire for better adhesion to the backer board.

DIY fire pits for patio deck

Below you can see the gas connection coming up from the deck. Glenn used a pan, which is availbale in aluminum / stainless steel base plate as well. This fire pit was natural gas. We also manufacture the burners for propane. We are the only ones who manufacture propane burners for your custom Fire Glass Fire Pits.

The stacker stone is now being applied.

stacker stone fire pit with metal fire ring

As you can see below the trimming valve is installed on the side. You would be surprised on how many plumbers don't think of this little detail, a valve to turn it on or off.  I have seen the valves installed inside of the pit or not even at all. You also need to be careful as to not have a gas line installed that is too small for the application.

Now the stone and cap are done, great and simple job!

custom patio stone fire pits with large metal fire ring

Below you an see the larger filler lava rock was installed. If a flat plate were to have been used you wouldn't need the larger filler lava rock base.

lava rocks for patio fire decks

Below our crushed lava was used to cover the larger lava rock to insure the glass does not fall through. This makes an even base. What ever shape you make the lava is the shape the glass will take.

Below we installed Water White base glass (32 lbs) for a 1 1/2" cover!

stone fire pit topped with fire crystals

The stone on the side of the fire pit used was to match the stone on the house as well. Looks awesome!

rock construction fire pit with fire crystal
Below is just the Water White before the colors were added.

deck fire pits with fire glass stones
The colors that were added are as follows:
Azurlite and Azurlite Reflective for the sky area.
Scarlett G072F3 Topping for the suns rays
Orange R140F4 Fire Glass Topper for the ring around the suns center
Emerald Green 1417 Topping for the bottom trees/ grass?
Deep Blue 2507 Fire Glass Topper mixed in around the Azurlite in the sky area.

custom fireglass designs
If you notice below the center of the sun, it changes when it get hot! This one of our fire glass chameleons, that change when the glass gets hot. If you look real close at the Orange Topper (next to the suns center) as well, it turns a bright cinnamon red when it get hot also! All of our chameleons will be posted when we get a chance.

colored fireglass designs
Above is the fire burning and below the fire was just turned off. Glenn spent a few hours placing all of the glass to make this very cool scene. So don't just think you can just throw it on and it knows were to go. Very creative!

This Story Begins As A "What Not To Do". But We Quickly Corrected It & Finished With Another Beautiful Fire and Glass Patio Fire Pit.

First, the burner was installed in the wrong location and it was also the wrong burner type!!! Remember burners must be with in 2" of the surface of the fire pit. Filling the pit with gas and then trying to light it? Nothing good can become of this.

We removed the Fire Rocks. And began to correct the issue of the wrong burner type and its location.

Fixing a fire pit

We installed a #304 stainless steel "H" burner, covered it with crushed lava (1/4" / 3/8") over the larger lava rock. This is what keeps it from trickling to the bottom.

Them we topped it with Starfire base glass. Then Eric is trying to decide which colors/ Topper he should add if any at all.Wrong type of burner above. Our "H" burner below. Watch the flame pattern as the crushed lava covers the burners.
