Cost Considerations and Propane Tank Storage
There are considerations when choosing between natural gas and propane to fuel your fire pit. Natural gas is cheaper to fuel in the long run, but natural gas fire pits require a plumber to install and the fire pit can’t be moved from the natural gas source.
Propane fire pits don’t require special installation but you will want to watch your fuel level so you don’t run out during your get-togethers. And here’s a pro tip: Check where the propane tank is installed in a propane fire pit table. We recommend styles with propane tank storage inside the unit. Otherwise, you’ll need a propane tank cover and will have to navigate around fuel lines.
Also, take a look at the storage compartment. A well-designed fire pit table will have easy access to the fuel chamber and uncomplicated fuel hookups. Castelle fire pits come fully assembled with a roomy propane tank chamber. With a ring for the propane tank to sit on, your tank will be stable and up off the ground. The access door uses a magnet to keep it shut and has a decorative handle.
The flame control knob for this match light fire pit is on the outside of the unit, next to the access door. A natural gas conversion kit is also available for their fire pits. These thoughtful design elements make it possible to enjoy the fire pit right out of the box.
