When trying out those recipes, be sure to use these seven tips for ensuring that your propane fire pit is used safely and responsibly:

  1. Read the manual: Before using your propane fire pit for the first time, be sure to read the manufacturer’s manual thoroughly. This will give you a good understanding of how to properly set up, use, and maintain your device.
  2. Choose a safe location: When setting up your fire pit, make sure that it is located in a safe area. Keep it away from any flammable materials, such as trees, bushes, or dry grass. Generally, it must be located 10 feet away from your home or neighbor’s property. Also, make sure that it is on a level surface to prevent it from tipping over.
  3. Ensure proper ventilation: Do not use your propane fire pit indoors. Improper ventilation can cause a build-up of carbon monoxide, possibly leading to an explosion. Be sure that your fire pit is only used outdoors in a space with maximum ventilation.
  4. Check for leaks: Before using your propane fire pit, be sure to check for any gas leaks. This can be done by applying a soapy water solution to the propane tank and connections. If you see bubbles forming, this indicates a leak, and you should not use the fire pit until the issue has been resolved.
  5. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby: It’s always a good idea to have a fire extinguisher nearby in case of an emergency. Make sure that it is easily accessible and that you know how to use it. Also keep a cellphone available in case a fire spreads beyond your control.
  6. Don’t leave it unattended: Never leave your fire pit unattended while it is in use. This can be especially dangerous if there are children or pets around. Make sure that someone is always keeping an eye on the fire pit.
  7. Be careful with clothing: Loose clothing or fabrics can easily catch fire if they come into contact with the flames. Make sure that you and your guests are wearing appropriate clothing and that it is kept away from the fire pit.
