Is this the year you’ll finally achieve year-round outdoor comfort? The best way to reach this goal is to invest in a propane fire pit. Whether for a solo wine night or a family cookout, putting a fire pit in your backyard is an affordable and easy way to entertain. Saying “yes” to a propane fire pit is saying “yes” to the premium outdoor living you deserve. 

What You Need To Know About Propane Fire Pits

A propane fire pit is the affordable, portable, no-mess entertainment option you’ve been searching for. Check out the top seven benefits of having a propane fire pit versus a wood-burning unit in your outdoor space. 

  • Easy, on-the-go transportation 
  • User-friendly 
  • Safe 
  • Clean burning (i.e. environmentally friendly) 
  • Lower fire hazard
  • Customizable by size, shape, and style  
  • Easy-start feature 

How To Replace the Propane Tank on Your Fire Pit

While it might sound challenging, replacing the propane tank on your fire pit is much simpler than you think. Here’s a five-step guide to replace your fire pit’s propane tank like a pro. 

  1. Get a full propane tank. You can find them at grocery stores, convenience stores, and gas stations across the country. And when you finish off one, you can take it back to the same place and have them refill it for a lower price than buying a new tank. 
  2. Turn the gas valve on the top of the tank to “OFF.” 
  3. Remove the plastic cap on the gas valve. 
  4. Attach a clean hose to the gas valve opening. 
  5. Secure the connection before turning on the tank. 

After completing those five steps, you’re set to turn on the propane tank and get that fire started. Once you invest in a propane tank, you’ll never want to go back to a wood-burning alternative. 

Propane fire pits are easier to use and easier to move around. Whether you’re going on a family camping trip for the weekend or just want to switch up the layout of your backyard. You’ll also save time and money by not having to constantly replenish your firewood supply. 

Where Does the Propane Tank Go? 

Some customers ask if you can put a propane tank under a fire pit. The answer? Sometimes. Depending on what size unit you purchase, you may or may not be able to hide the propane tank under the fire pit. With short, round fire pits, your only option is to connect the propane tank to a hose and set it to the side where you can see it. With taller, wider fire pits, you’re able to store the propane tank within the unit where it’s hidden. 

If you want to have the option of an out-of-sight tank, consider purchasing a taller fire pit—like “The Burlington” LP Gas Outdoor Fire Pit. If you don’t mind having a visible propane tank in your outdoor space, then a shorter option—like our ROUND Portable LP Gas Outdoor Fire Pit—will work just as well.
