Building a Gas Fire Pit

What Is a Fire Pit?

fire pit is a freestanding metal vessel in which an outdoor fire is contained. Fire pits are a fun way to center an outdoor space, creating the perfect area for people to gather. Fire pits come in a wide range of styles, shapes and sizes, but typically fire pit tables are table-height and operate on natural gas or propane. With our range of pieces, parts, & accessories, building a gas fire pit has never been easier!

Fire Pit Options

Fire pit tables, just like traditional fire pits, can use propane or natural gas. A propane fire pit offers the option of portability because your pit’s fuel comes from a small propane tank. Building a gas fire pit and attaching it to the natural gas line of your home requires a permanent fire pit structure, but can save you money in the long run.

The easiest way to build a gas fire pit  is to purchase a manufactured drop-in fire pit kit that you place in a surrounding of your choice. This can be a table, though you would want to ensure any option you choose is fire proof. These types of kits usually feature a bowl shape and come ready to install.

Once you have decided on your fire pit option, it is easy to install a gas fire pit table with cover. Building a gas fire pit is easy if you choose the right product. If you are ready to tackle a DIY project, a fire pit is a great one to start with!

At SoCal Fire Pits, we offer options for your fire pit kit.  For example, you may choose to source your own top locally through a granite supplier or choose one of our great table top options.
