What Size Fire Glass Should I Use For My Propane Fire Bowl?

What size fire glass should I use for my propane fire feature?

Lava Rock for PropaneWe do NOT recommend that you use fire glass with a propane fire bowl. It poses dangerous safety and fire hazards. Because propane is heavier than natural gas, it will sink to the bottom of your feature. Fire glass will not allow propane to circulate, and this could can lead to explosion of this particular media. Even with larger fire glass pieces, there is still not enough room for the gas to dissipate from wind and other factors.

However, we do suggest that you use other fire pit media such as lava rock. Lava rock allows propane to dissipate and is the safest choice for propane features. Shop our many choices of natural lava rock at Fireside Expressions!
