How to choose the right pit for your home
Choosing a fire pit may seem like a simple thing. However, Bali has about 10 options on the market and the answers to the questions below will help reduce the time you would have spent in your search for the perfect match.
- Shape and size
with outdoor pits, the shape and size is absolutely essential. Whether you go for a fire pit table or a fire column or the traditional round pits depend on the space on your patio. When choosing, you’ll need to check on the size carefully. Remember, tables are the largest of the batch.
For the shape, metal wood pits need to be thoroughly inspected. For instance, when you use too much wood some metal pits tend to lean. When choosing a wood or chiminea pit, check that there are no dings or dents. Also, check that the legs are not bent.
- Accessories needed
Your pit itself is the essential part, but think about additional accessories you may need. This will determine the type of fire pit you choose.
For instance, a gas fire pit table needs a tank, most need a 20 lbs tank. You’ll also need a good hose. If you live in a windy place, we recommend you also get a wind guard to keep the flame from blowing.
If you opt for a wooden pit, this brand has some excellent options. Their main pit is multifuctional. You can use it for warmth during summer and also it has a cooking grate that you can use for grilling.
Now a chiminea needs a few accessories too. In this pit’s chamber you’ll find a grate which you’ll use to build the fire. The grill provided is strong but we recommend you get an extra just in case …. And, this pit has a pit screen and stand so you don’t have to worry about those.
Fire pit safety measures
Here are some tips to help you stay safe around your bali fire pit:
- For a propane gas fire pit, ensure the hose is fitted perfectly and the tank is kept out of site
- The table top should be cleaned and covered when not in use
