Fire Pits 2.'*

The fire pit below is a new project for us and is still being modified to this day. We are now planning for the fiber optics in all 14 waterfalls! If you look carefully you will see then before we install the lighting. We have been working with new ways of altering fire and we have found how to burn hydrogen! For now you will see the flame change to a lighter more orange flame when the hydrogen hits the fire. We have found how to make fire tornadoes in the process, which makes for a spectacular flame effect! Now for the pictures. We also installed a complete mister system all around the water fall and fire pits to help with the hydrogen.
The 2 below are at dusk with no fire and only lights

The fire pit below will show you how not to do it (bad plumbing) and how easy it is to install a battery operated remote control. The glass used was Ford Blue and we installed 2 44" stainless steel "H" burners.

In the pictures on the top right, do you see the plumbing sticking out of the pit? Well this was fixed, but not by the plumber that tried to install it. We cut a little bit of concrete and placed the valve in properly.

Above you will see a very poor attempt of a gas burner and valve.

We covered the larger lava rock with our crushed lava rock to pour a 1 1/2" Ford Blue base to cover the lava and burners. Unless you plan to cover your outdoor fire pit we recommend to use all stainless steel burners and parts to avoid rusting.

Once the glass covers the box, it just looks nice. To replace the batteries, move the glass on the top and the rest is simple.

The fire pit above is at the Torrance Marriott in California.

The fire bowl below is one of our newest products/ projects. The first one went to Ramsey Burton in Kentucky of which after he installs it is his ten foot granite table we will show you pictures of his project. This is a 48" spun aluminum bowl with a 24" center bowl with a water feature with fibre optics. The outer bowl has a stainless steel ring for a full surround fire feature. So here are the first proto-type pictures from the shop.
These pictures show what happens when it gets darker as the fire is attracted to the water. Opposites attract, maybe this is why most of us are still together. The question is" Who is the FIRE?"
No we add the fibre optics in the center bowl.
The glass we used was our Multi Mix. At least 80 colors are showing.
You can change the water head for a different effect.
We are going to be showing this for the first time in Palm Springs on December 06 2007 on Thursday evening at the Village Fest. This is just a base you would build your table around and we can add any feature or effect you would like. We will be adding several features to this fire/ water feature in the next few weeks. We will be posting pictures from the Village Fest after the first showing. If you dream it, we will build it.

The pictures below are of the fire pit on the roof top of the Marriott in downtown San Diego in the Gas Lamp District on the 24th floor, very cool view if your ever there. The 2 half round 24" x 48" stainless steel rings were made custom for this fire pit. The glass that was used was a 50/50 mix of Starfire and Black. Very nice effect along with the view.

The fire pit below is in Malibu California which no one could figure out how to do what we did. The customer didn't want to see the fire pit hood anymore. So we just raised it. And everyone said it couldn't be done! This is what we like to do, take imagination and make it a reality. The base was provided by the customer we just supplied the "raise the hood" and the ring and Bronze and Bronze Reflective glass.

The pictures below will show you how to install a propane burner and valve in your fire pit without drilling a hole in the side of your fire pit with our FPPK (fire pit propane kit). This was install in Calabasas California with Bronze and Bronze Reflective on top. The fire pit has 10" solid sides which made this a good candidate for the FPPK to be installed on the inside wall. This is a propane fire pit and we do calibrate every valve to every ring we install to eliminate back flow and any problems or issues that may happen. We also install the proper air mixer to insure a clean burn as we eliminate the soot know to be produced by propane. If you have a propane fire pit you know what I am talking about.

They used our standard 14" x 14" RV fire pits and built tables around them with a frosted glass table top for the Linda Young Event in Newport Beach California. These can be made for natural gas or propane. The ones used were propane. We will be working with Rrivre on several up coming event and we will be posting a few over the top new products. We are going to be building water and fire features for some of the events. Be sure to check out his web site!

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 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.

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 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.

We did propane for the King and there are no issues! Awesome marble!

The fire pit below is filled with lava rock and then was topped with a base of Clear base glass. Then they covered the Clear with Azurlite and topped it with a few Ice Ice Ice cubes. A funny story comes with this fire pit. Elliott came out from the San Fernando Valley as he was sent by his mother, which was tooooo busy to come out herself. She told Elliott to pick out the colors he liked which he did (he was told to pick amber colors). He went home with Amber and Gold and set up the fire pit which actually looked very nice. Well to his demise his mother did not like Amber at all! She made Elliott pick out all of the Amber and replace it with what you see here. Yes we did exchange the glass for him to prevent his mother from further punishing Elliott. We will post the Amber pictures when we come across them in our files.

The fire pit below has a black Base with Black Reflective on top.Not too great of a fire pit picture but you get the idea. Even with Black as a base glass you will only see the color of glass under the fire. The flames don't change color nor does the glass, but the glass is what will reflect the light at night.

The fire pit below is a custom fire pit in Covina, California with one really great back yard design. This back yard was designed for great parties. If you look and see the glass wall with the etching you will also see the fire pit in the back ground. The glass that was used: Gray and Clear Pyrite base glass, Gold Reflective, and Copper Blue Topper. This is one really good looking table.

The fire pit below (from Randy Cox) has a Clear base with Pale Cobalt Blue Topper and Aquamarine Topper for a simple but very nice fire pit.
Below you can see the larger 3/4"/ 1" crushed lava rock as a base filler.
Below you can now see our 1/4" crushed lava to finish off the larger lava.
The glass goes in and your finished!.
Randy installed a 22" stainless ring and when he took the picture he had the flame on low.

The fire pit below belongs to Chad Haupert. He used an Azurlite base with Azurlite Reflective on top. Then he created a star in the center using Bronze Rust Copper with and outline of Ice Ice Ice. We didn't get pictures of the complete pit nor of it burning. But it looks great!

The burner below is one of our FPPK's (fire pit propane kit). With this FPPK we set it up for Black Magic! This was table tested for the pictures. Hopefully the customer will send us pictures after and during installation. We first sent these pictures for the customers approval. Here you go! The pan below belongs to Scott Spector and he finally installed the fire pit in his back yard, WOW, one really nice backyard!

The fire pit below was built by Scott Spector in Florida. He started with an FPPK 30 which includes a 30" base plate and a double 24" stainless steel ring. Here we go from the beginning:
The propane line was run/ installed under the pavers.

The colors that were used are
1/2" Clear base,
Black Magic in the center,
Clear Diamonds,
Cobalt Blue Topper,
Clear Topper,

Cobalt Blue Light Topper
and our FPPK 30". That is our 30" propane burner. You can see the actual burner above burning before shipment and installation.

We don't have any pictures of the fire pit burning at Scott's but he did tel us that when he fired it up again he would try to send us a few pictures. Thanks Scott.


The fire table below was built by Christina "Stina" in the San Francisco area. With a little ambition, imagination and our help, she now has one very nice fire table.
Here is where it started. She made a template of the pan and where the mounting tabs would be located. Then we built the aluminum pan and propane burner for Stina to install.

Below is how the teak table started. We just brought it into the future.

Below the pan was installed with Galaxy Green base glass.

Below you can see the top installed and what a difference.

Below is her wonderfully finished project, Great job Stina!


The fire pit below is going to be installed in Sacramento on 11 14 09 for the Yard Crashers/ DIY/ HGTV show. After it is and has been installed we will post pictures on the Yard Crashers page. In the mean time here is the how to and why. We can build any size, shape, design feature you desire. We build to your imagination.
Below is the catch basin to hold the water for the feature

Above you see the auto fill?
Below the water pump is now install below.

Below the top pan is in place for testing with the fire and water bowls in place

Below the stainless steel ring is installed.

Below the glass (Bronze base glass) has been installed and the lights turned on.

Below you can see the pump has been turned on.
and now the fire.
We placed a card board template to replicate the table top to conceal the lights as well.
Now we add color to the water!
Here is the feature exposed with the blue water. You can change the water to any color you like.
This feature is only 6 1/2" tall. You can mount this under the table top and keep it only an inch or so above the surface of the table top.
So let's change it to red water and add Starfire base glass.
Remember, we build to your imagination!
The finished pictures will be posted on the Yard Crashers page when this project is installed after 11 14 09!

The Fire Table below was installed in Sacramento California by and for Yard Crashers. The finished pictures will be posted on the Yard Crashers page when this project is installed after 01 20 10. This episode was to be labeled "Outdoor Shower" on HGTV and the DIY Network but somehow it was labeled "Modern Fire Wall" go figure? It is episode 302 on HGTV or DIY Network. The details will be shown on the DIY page when and as soon as we receive them from the producers. We built a square aluminum pan with an 18" double stainless steel ring and used one of our FPPK kits for the propane fuel. This will be shown on the episode coverage as well. Here are the pictures of the back yard and the finished fire table using propane.

The fire pit below is from Frank Hammond. He created a beach environment in his back yard. He purchased a wood burning fire pit and we converted it to a gas burning pit. We also supplied a quick disconnect gas line to eliminate plumbing underground. he used a Bronze base glass over a bed of crushed lava and topped it with Gold base glass.

The fire pit below is in San Diego California. First we built 2 new half oval stainless
steel rings. To replace a futile attempt of burner rings by the contractor. If you don't want your rings to rust, cover them or purchase stainless steel. We will explain as we move on.
sd 17
We converted the mishap of rings with two valves, one for each ring. The first issue was the contractor installed a 1/2" gas line, oops. Way too small for the distance. The home owner had to have the pressure turned up by the gas company. Sometimes this is not possible. We spit one line into two. This enabled us to equalize flames in each burner half.

The fire ring that was used was a 30" round side feed. We make custom rings for any application. Either for propane or natural gas fire pits or fireplaces.

The fire pit pictures below were taken by and for the Sweat Equity weekly HGTV Do It Yourself TV Show. The FireGlass that was installed was:
Starfire base,
Blue Diamonds,
Ford Blue base glass,
with an 18" stainless steel fire pit ring burner with out the center to accommodate the water feature. All of the fire glass was placed around the pile of fire rocks in the center. The top of the table is removable if you ever needed to service the water pump or any other reason. Always build and design it with replacement or repair in mind.
Now for the fire pit pictures:

If you look closely you can see the reflection of the glass top cover. Not a bad idea!

Here is what Sandee and Frank had to say:
Hi Ed,

We love our fire pit, and so does everyone else who sees it. Your rock is gorgeous…

We keep a glass octagonal table top on it when not in use; the rock is always visible, even when used as simply a coffee table.

Thanks for your beautiful product and great service!!

The next fire pit was build/ constructed by Rose Harms in Wyoming. Long story behind this one with what the plumbers were telling her and what actually happened. We will explain as we go.
Rose Harms 1
Above and below you can see we had her install a gas line with a quick disconnect hose.
Here is what Rose had to say:
Hi Ed and Claudia,
Wanted to be sure I got the photos to you of our completed fire pit.
Here are the steps we went through:

Bought the brick/blocks (no lip on the stones) from Lowe's, put in circle, 3 rows high.
Bought the iron fire pit at Lowe's and placed on and inside fire pit. -note -it is iron, so I sprayed it with HIGH HEAT paint, in Copper. Wow!
got plumber to run natural gas from deck above (outlet for BBQ) and under the deck, ran down the deck post and he put in a Shut Off valve there.
It turns.
He ran a precise hole through the bottom off the fire pit to hold pipe for gas to the double ring burner (from Moderustic of course) and it is stainless
steel (no rust). At the bottom of the deck post is a flexible hose which goes over to the fire pit. It CAN be disconnected or even roll up and
shove inside fire pit (after it is cooled).

Note: you do need to chop off a piece of the block, or else just pull one out when you are using the
fire pit. (Kind of like Jenga -just pull out the stone, the others support the fire pit) Unless you can successfully saw off a piece of the stone.

Lit the burner to be sure it works well. It did.

We put in the 1" lava rock in the bottom of copper fire pit and then filled in the spaces with 1/4" lava rock. Should have used More! When we went to
cover the burner we were short on the fireglass. So we ordered more. Still looks beautiful.

Got rest of glass and made circles with the glass and it is beautiful. There are photos of it burning last night!! Lots of warmth on a typical
cool Wyoming evening.

Brick: $200, Fire Pit $79 on sale, double ring SS burner $126, glass -about $250, gas line -don't know yet but guessing $200. Maybe $750-800 total.
And -the way it is made, we could actually dismantle and move it. No mortar in stones. We are very happy with our fire pit and thanks to Ed and the gals
at Moderustic, we were able to make the right choice for glass and burner. Thanks Ed, Rebecca and Claudia. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Could not have managed
this without your guidance. We love being DYI-ers but directions are needed!! We appreciate all your help.

This was originally going to be propane but if you have natural gas, then use it if you can. It will cost less in the long run.

The fire pit below was built and designed by Brett Parks in Indiana. Brett came to us to help hm create his water fire feature for his back yard and be able to winterize it during their frigid winters. The glass he used was a:
We then built a custom shape stainless steel burner to fit his idea. We will explain as we go.
Here is his original concept drawing:

The fire feature was commissioned by Mark and Jair in Long Beach California. The very top bowl was filled with Ford Blue Fire Glass and the bowl below has 300 fibers installed. The fiber optics changes colors of can be stationary or change colors at will. The water in the fiber optics bowl spins and spills over onto the rock base.
We will explain as we move forward. Evening pictures with the fiber optics in motion and the under lighting will be shown as soon as we can visit the site in Long Beach in the evening.
Mark Long Beach 1
First the utilities were ran underground (18") and this is generally permit required work.
Mark Long Beach 2
Second, the pond liner is installed and then we drop in our feature. This feature was powder coated at the request of the customer.
Mark Long Beach 3
Mark Long Beach 4
Below is the NEMA enclosure to house the electronics and fiber optics.
Mark Long Beach 5

We installed 3 = 2,700 GPH (gallon per hour) pumps to power the flow of water. We turned each pump down to accommodate the proper water flow.
Mark Long Beach 7
Level the top fountain.
Mark Long Beach 9
Mark Long Beach 8
Above you see the NEMA box exposed, it will be covered with stone as soon as the electrician finishes his switch installations. There will be one switch for each of the 3 pumps, fiber optics, fiber optics color wheel and under the top bowl we installed lighting to illuminate the rock below in the the evening.

We can build these fountains for you to install yourself or we can aid you in building your own. We can help you design and or build your fire and water feature. Finished and evening pictures still to come!
The fire pit below is from Scott Woods. He installed a Starfire base glass and Topped it with Copper Blue Topper and Cobalt Blue Topper.

Steve Hinojos (S.B. County Sheriff) built two fire pits using propane. One of which was a Wine Barrel Fire Pit and the other a traditional (oopsies on this one!). We will explain as we move on.
Steve Hinojos 4
We supplied the know how and all of the parts to make his Wine Barrel Fire Pit a success! great job Steve!
Steve Hinojos 3
Steve Hinojos 5
We also supplied Steve with the all of the propane parts to make his fire table work properly as well. It's when we got his pictures that we noticed the ROCKS! You can't burn ROCKS, they EXPLODE! This you can see in the Famous "How Not To Do It" page. Initially he had no problems but once they took on moisture, sure enough he was back for some safe and sound glass!
Steve Hinojos 2
All in all, great job Steve!
Steve Hinojos 1

The fire pit below is a propane fire pit. Notice that there is no soot! If you do it right, then it is done right! We are very proud of this fact. The base glass is a Starfire base glass topped with a Copper Blue Topper.

On the picture below you can see the Propane pilot cover/ blow out box at the bottom of the picture. When I received these pictures I didn't understand the dark chunks???? The customer was being creative and dropped in a few chunks of lava.
Yvonne Abbas 1

This particular Topper is a Copper Blue Topper, meaning we use copper and chrome to manufacture the glass. What this means is that when the glass gets hot, it turns green (because of the copper) and when it cools it returns to blue (because of the chrome). We actually have almost 30 colors which change colors. We hope to introduce these chameleons in the near future. But for now they are just hiding amongst the other colors.

The fire pit below was designed by Tim Warden of Orange County, California. We helped finish the design/ build of this fire pit.
We will explain as we go forward:
Start with a cantilever design off of the deck overhanging the hill side.
Orange County Fire Pit 1
Close up of the control valves
Orange County Fire Pit 2
Two valves to control two burners. Don't expect to push gas into a massive burner then hope it goes where you want it to??? This helps equalize the pressure to each burner.
Orange County Fire Pit 3
Below the plumbing is now finished.
Orange County Fire Pit 4
Test burn
Orange County Fire Pit 5
We used two 50" "T" burners in #304 Stainless Steel.
Orange County Fire Pit 6
Copper cladding was added to the top portion and wrapped in water proofing material.
Orange County Fire Pit 7
Durock (cement board) was added the the lower portion for an application of smooth stucco.

Starting to look nice! Real Nice! No that's not Marijuana in the back ground!
Orange County Fire Pit 13
The 1/2" glass panels get installed with stand off clips on the back side so you don't see the installation.

Looking from across the pool, very cool!

The next several pictures show you a flip top box design for a fire pit control panel. It is constructed from stainless steel or could be made from aluminum. The trimming valves are for adjusting the flame are inside along with an electronic key to activate the electronic ignition. These were made for an apartment complex and only the management had control of the electronic ignition. Here are the pictures.

The fire pit below was designed and built by Tamara Lyons and her wonderful family! Junior help most. The glass that was used is:
Bronze Rust Copper base glass,
E.D. Diamonds, Red and Orange,
Amber Diamonds,
Orange R140 Topper, this particular color is one of our chameleons. It turns a bright cherry red when heated and cools back to orange when cooled!
The fire pit had three sets of burners. One in the center and one on each outer edge. This way you can control how large, how much and where you can have fire when you want it.
Tamara Lyons 4
This is how it started
Tamara Lyons 5
Pea gravel base

Tamara Lyons 1
Measure once, cut twice.
Tamara Lyons 2
Ohhh, what color?? There are sooo many. What to do????
Tamara Lyons 3
So we sent a make up of what colors they liked. We can do this for you as well. Just tell us what colors you want and we will mix a batch and send you the pictures!
