Can I put fire glass in my fire pit or fire pit table?

Hello everyone. I have been thinking about writing for a while. The only issue is trying to figure out the important topics that you would be interested in. After traveling across the country and completing 5 weeks of home and garden shows, I realize I get a lot of questions that I could probably talk about here on the blog.

The first question that I would like to discuss is, “Can I use the Urban Fire Glass in my fire pit or fire table?”

It is really important that everyone understands the difference between the fire pit tables that are designed for the fire glass vs. the gas logs, wood, or lava rock. Some fire tables for example, the Oriflamme Fire pit table, are specifically designed for the fire glass. It uses either propane or natural gas. If your table is hooked up to natural gas then you should be good to go. Natural gas is clean burning therefore it should not create soot and will allow you glass to stay clean. Propane on the other hand is another story. Normally, if your fire table or fire pit or fire table uses propane and is not specifically designed for the fireglass, I suggest that you stay away from using it. The main reason being that it will turn black from the soot. Propane is not clean burning like natural gas is therefore you will always have some kind of soot, UNLESS the system actually cleans the propane prior to it hitting the glass by mixing in air. This is what the Oriflamme Fire table does to prevent the fire glass from turning completely black. What is the point if it starts looking dirty? It is certainly not pretty to look at. Another point to take note of is that is also the burner design that makes the fire glass look cool. I will write about that on my next blog so stay tuned.

Anyhow, be sure to do your research and ask if the fire table was designed for the fire glass before buying a outdoor fire pit table. Please note there are some companies excited to sell you the glass regardless of what it looks like. AllBackyardfun.com is not one of these companies.
