What is the little opening with a swinging door on the gas starter pipes for? Do I need to purchase a gas starter pipe with or without this opening? And do I keep this open or closed when starting a fire?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 6, 2013
Answer:The small flap is an air mixer opening that helps to balance the fuel to air ratio for a cleaner burning flame. The flap can be adjusted for best performance of the log lighter. Some log lighters are still produced without the mixer, but it is best to utilize one with it.

What pipe do i need to order for a LP gas fire place starter? I have the mixing chamber. The pipe is straight and around 17 inches long. I just need the pipe.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 24, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, the manufacturer has recently discontinued the 17" straight LP log lighter (labeled "E" in the picture) and it is no longer available. We apologize for this inconvenience.

I am looking for the correct gas starter kit or a conversion kit for this Copperfield T-Style pipe and mixing chamber. Do you sell these? Our professional installer has installed the feed pipe but he is not familiar with fire starter kits.

While the T-style propane version of this product has been discontinued and we do not offer any type of a conversion kit, we do offer the 17" straight pipe
version in liquid propane.

Will this work for an outdoor fireplace?

I recently had an outdoor fireplace built. I ran a natural gas line to the fireplace as I originally intended to use a gas log set. I never installed a gas log set as I have decided I would rather do wood burning. Is there any issue with simply using these Copperfield T-style gas starter pipe with mixing chamber gas starters for wood burning in lieu of a gas log set? Also, are these okay for outdoor use?
By Will M. on December 8, 2015
You will need to use a Stainless Steel Log Lighter
for outdoor use, but please note that log lighters should only be used to start the fire and shut off via the manual valve (not included) once the fire is lit.

What type piping do I need to connect to T-Style Gas Starter Pipe? Can I use black pipe to connect to T-Style gas starter pipe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 26, 2012
Answer:That is correct. Black iron pipe with a 1/2" diameter is the most commonly used material to make this connection.

Do natural gas pipes require a mixing chamber?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 21, 2013
Answer:Depending on the design of the log lighter, a mixing chamber may or may not be needed. On models equipped with one, the chamber is designed to ensure a safe air to fuel ratio and proper ignition. A chamber will be included with the log lighter, if the lighter is designed for use with one.

Can I use the mixing gas chamber on B or C or D to cap on my existing gas pipe for natural gas starter fire place?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 21, 2013
Answer:I only recommend using the mixing chamber with the burner pipe it comes with. Because of the variety of burner port sizes that are used across the industry, the internal orifice in the chamber is likely to be the wrong size for your existing pipe.

What does this unit hook up to?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 28, 2011
Answer:This particular gas starter is designed to connect to a gas line that enters the fireplace in the center of fireplace floor. It simply threads right onto the gas inlet.

Do you have an instruction manual available? How does this pipe install?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 20, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, we do not have any written literature for this product, as it is intended to be installed only by a licensed plumber.
This particular gas starter pipe has the inlet fitting in the center, which is convenient for fireplaces with a supply line in the center of the firebox floor. Each piece can be assembled individually, using gas line tape.
