Yes. It is certified for use in all of North America.
For the Fire Pits, the Burner System produces a wide range of heat output peaking at 90,000 BTUs.
For the Fire Tables, the Burner System produces a wide range of heat output peaking at 40,000 BTUs.
For the Fire Pit, a 20# propane tank will last approximately 4 to 4 ½ hours at a continuous burn at the maximum output. The tank will last approximately 8-9 hours at a moderate gas output.
For the Fire Table, a 20# propane tank will last approximately 4 to 4 ½ hours at a continuous burn at the maximum output. The tank will last approximately 8-9 hours at a moderate gas output.
For the Fire Table, four 1# propane tanks may be attached to the manifold. Each tank will last approximately ½ hour at a continuous burn at the maximum output. If all four tanks are attached, the tanks will last approximately 2 hours at a continuous burn at the maximum gas output.
Please refer to the Lighting Instruction sticker located on the Fire Pit and Fire Table Base. The Fire Pit and Fire Table may also be lit without using the igniter by using a flame source such as a long reach torch to light the pilot light and then follow the Fire Pit and Fire Table lighting instructions on the label located on the Fire Pit and Fire Table Base.
No. Only the propane tank that is in use should be inside the Base.
No. The Burner, including the pilot flame, must be turned off when the Burner Cover is in place.
The Burner Tray of the Fire Pit and Fire Table is equipped with drain holes to allow moisture to drain should it happen to be exposed to water.
The use of the Tropitone® Cast Burner Tray Cover is highly recommended.
If the Burner Tray is not covered during inclement weather, the Burner system may be damaged by extended and repeated exposure to water.
Please contact your local gas supplier for information on how to adjust the air mixture for your local elevation.
A conversion kit is available. The conversion kit must be supplied by Tropitone® in order to maintain the Fire Pit and Fire Table’s ICC listing. Please contact your local authorized Tropitone® Commercial Sales Representative.
The Grill Pan is made of heavy-duty cast aluminum for effective heat transfer and includes a hard anodized cooking surface which allows for the safe use of aluminum even with acidic foods, and for ease of use and clean-up.
The Grill Pan cooking surface should reach temperatures no higher than 400°F - 450°F. An easy and useful method to ensure this temperature is to never allow the flame to rise above the chimney (hole) in the center of the Grill Pan.
The best flame height for this use is to adjust the flame so that it is just visible at the center opening (chimney) of the Grill Pan. It will take approximately 10-12 minutes for the Grill Pan to heat
The anodized Grill Pan does not need to be seasoned. Anodized aluminum is an "easy release" surface. You may experience some sticking of foods during the initial use of the grill. This will improve after the first few uses of the grill pan. In order to minimize any food sticking to the Grill Pan, allow the Pan to heat up for approximately 10-12 minutes prior to use. Also, allow the ingredients to finish grilling on one side prior to turning.
If you choose to season the Grill Pan, it will not harm the Grill Pan. We recommend using a cooking oil that will withstand high temperatures. Apply a light coat of oil to the Grill Pan prior to heating the pan.
During use the handles on the Grill Pan will become hot. Allow the Grill Pan to cool before using the handles or touching the pan.
If using hot pads, only do so after the Fire Pit and Fire Table has been turned off and the flame has been extinguished.
If you remove the Grill Pan when hot or warm, be sure to place the items on a heat resistant surface.
Any utensils that you would normally use for cooking may be used. Metal cooking utensils may be used as the Grill Pan is made of hard anodized aluminum and will not scratch under normal use.
The Grill Pan is designed and patented for use only on Tropitone® brand Fire Pits and Fire Tables.
The Grill Pan can be cleaned as any other anodized aluminum cookware may be cleaned.
The Grill Pan must be allowed to cool prior to cleaning. Do not immerse the Grill Pan in cold water until the pan has cooled. A non-scratch scrub sponge, along with liquid dishwashing soap and water, may be used to clean the pan.
The Glass Fire Media that Tropitone® offers is sold in 10# quantities.
25# for a round Fire Pits and Fire Tables
35# for a square Fire Pits and Fire Tables
Some Media (approximately 5#) will be left over. Retain it for future use to replace Media as needed.
No. It is not designed to burn wood. Burning wood in this product will cause damage, is extremely dangerous and will void the warranty.
Turn down the flame on the Fire Pit and Fire Table to ensure the flame is not above the chimney (hole) in the middle of the Grill Pan. If you observe the flame coming out of the chimney (hole) of the Grill Pan, it is too high. This may cause residual soot to accumulate.
Some minimal soot may develop on the bottom or edges of the Grill Pan. This is normal under appropriate use. Simply clean away to soot after each use.
For the gas components, refer to the Installation Instructions that were provided with the Fire Pit and Fire Table. The installation Instructions are also available on the Tropitone® website at www.tropitone.com.
For the table top and Base, refer to the Tropitone® website at www.tropitone.com for the Care and Maintenance Guide.
Please contact your local authorized Tropitone® Commercial Sales Representative.
Check the 9V battery. Replace if needed.
Contact your local authorized Tropitone® Commercial Sales Representative if this does not resolve the problem.
The Fire Pit includes a Blow Out Box which houses the Pilot Flame, Igniter and Thermocouple safety device that is designed to sense the loss of heat from the pilot flame and will automatically shut off the gas if the pilot flame goes out. If this occurs, you will need to follow the shut down instructions, on the label located near the Burner System controls located on the Base. After following the shut down instruction, you may restart the Fire Pit.
Immediately turn off the knob on the propane tank. Allow sufficient time for any propane in the air to dissipate. Check the Fire Pit carefully for any loose connections. Gas leaks should never be tested by lighting a match near the plumbing. Use a leak detection kit from your local home improvement store or contact a qualified gas technician in your area to assist with detecting and correcting a leak. Never operate any gas appliance that has a gas leak.
NO. THE FIRE PIT AND FIRE TABLE ARE DESIGNED AND INTENDED FOR OUTDOOR USE ONLY. NEVER INSTALL OR OPERATE THE FIRE PIT INDOORS. OPERATING A FIRE PIT AND FIRE TABLE INDOORS WILL RESULT IN A VERY DANGEROUS CONDITION.
We do not recommend using the Fire Pit and Fire Table on a windy day.
No. The Fire Pit table top is not designed to be used as a seating surface
The Top will get warm to the touch near the Burner Pan.
