Check Your Local Regulations: Check with your local municipality to follow guidelines on gas fire pits.

Warming Trends Crossfire

Choose Your Fuel: Fire Pit Kits work with Natural gas (NG) or Liquid Propane (LP).

  • Before choosing you Warming Trends Kit, plan for where the gas line will be located a place that is easily accessible for your location.
  • Natural Gas and Liquid Propane are both clean burning, eco-friendly fuels.

Measure BTUs and Supply Pressure

  • Gas Supply Pressure - Have an expert measure the gas supply pressure to be sure it meets the required pressure for your gas firepit.
  • Natural gas Supply Pressure should be set between 3.5" - 7" Water Column.
  • Propane Supply Pressure should be set between 8" - 11" Water Column.
  • A 20 lb. propane BBQ tank has an output limit of 90,000 - 125,000 BTUs so the burner you choose must be rated for 125,000 BTUs or less if using this type of tank.

Make Sure Your Burner Kit Fits the Enclosure – Always measure before purchasing a kit!

  • Measure the internal diameter of your fire pit enclosure from inside edge to inside edge, then subtract 6 inches. This leaves 3 inches of space around the circumference of the burner.
  • Always measure before buying your insert.
  • Inside diameter subtract 6 inches

Ignition Options: Match Lit, Push Button, 24 Volt Spark Ignition, or 24 Volt Hot Surface Ignition (SC). See here for more details here.

  • A burner plate or pan is essential when operating a propane fire pit because it separates the air mixer from the burner. A plate helps with air ventilation and drainage for all fire pits.

Ventilation – Sufficient ventilation is required for all Fire Pit Use.

  • CSA recommends (1) - 36in² vent or (2) 18in² vents on opposing sides to allow proper airflow and minimize risk.
