Fire pits are a great addition to any home, giving homeowners and guests an excuse to spend more time outside together in upcoming summer evenings. Here are a few reasons why a fire pit can change the landscape of your backyard.
What can I use my fire pit for?
To start, fire pits are a great utility. They can be used to keep guests warm, roasting marshmallows, telling stories outside, or even be kitted for cooking/grilling. Depending on the climate of the area they are installed, they can also be very useful for harsh winters, as long as coal/firewood is readily available.
On top of utility, following install, fire pits have very minimal maintenance needs.
What do I need to do to maintain my fire pit?
Firstly, fire pits mainly need to be scrubbed and cleaned occasionally. This is to be proactive about preventing fire hazards, and keeping guests safe. Easily enough, a full fire pit scrubbing shouldn’t take more than an hour, even when completed in detail.
Try to finish up the cleaning process in a timely manner. If the pit has a metal base, there’s a potential for rust to set in during cleaning. Avoid leaving water sitting in the pit for an extended period of time. Leaks in the system can sprout up as well occasionally, but these are very noticeable and easy fixes.
Aside from that, the maintenance in comparison to other outdoor utilities is extremely low. You’ll have your fire pit up and running in no time, rarely noticing the days when you have to take the time to clean it out.
