The hook up project


The next step is to install the gas burners, or log lighters, in the bottom of the pit. Log lighters are available from home-improvement centers and typically require no tools for installation. They simply tighten by hand. After making certain that the pre-installed gas supply to the fire pit is turned off, remove the caps from the gas connections. Then set the log lighters in place and screw them onto their connections (Images 1 and 2). The log lighters come with a large hole at the base which can be opened or closed to varying degrees (Image 3) to control the gas-to-air mix, and thus the size of the flame. There are also gas-jet holes along the length of each log lighter to allow the gas and flame to come out (Image 4).

I am not an electrician. After much consulting and over sight from a licensed 25 year Master Electrician I believe these instructions to be correct and accurate for my jurisdiction. Electrical codes vary from place to place. In my place of residence home owners are allowed to do their own electrical work if it is up to code. You are responsible for any code violations, permits or awesome good stuff that comes from doing a project like this.
