Rain Problems With Fire Pit Burners

With a variety of models and price points, fire pits offer a nice alternative for homeowners in search of a new backyard focal point. Proper use and maintenance ensure the fire pit will provide years of enjoyment.


Outdoor gas fire pits combine functionality with landscaping enhancement. With natural gas or propane, the fire pits provide clean burning flames without the nuisance and cleanup of charred logs or charcoal.

Rain Problems

Rain and other moisture buildup may interfere with the gas burners by preventing proper lighting or causing pops and crackling. Excess moisture may cause rust and eventual failure of the gas system.

Moisture Prevention

Cover the fire pit when not in use. Choose a fire pit designed specifically for outdoor wear and tear. Select a fire pit with stainless steel parts to avoid rust problems.
