    I was thinking about putting a Superior 36 inch wct or a 42 inch wtc in an outside covered Ramada. We have a lot of "no burn days" so my thought was to run a outdoor propane log set. Which log set would you suggest and how many hours of burn would I get with a 5 gallon propane tank?
    1 Answer
    First off, I would not recommend installing one of the indoor-only WCT 36" or 42" models outdoors as they are constructed of galvanized sheet metal and would rust rather quickly if left exposed to the elements. Instead, I'd recommend a stainless steel outdoor system like the Superior "WRE" series in a 36" or 42". Models like this are shown here. As far as the 20 lb. tank you plan to use, this is common for smaller outdoor fire pits that will be used with little frequency. If you plan to use this log set with any frequency, I'd recommend using a much larger tank to avoid any headaches resulting from frequent outages. While this is more problematic in colder weather, LP tanks are filled to roughly 80% and will only absorb heat through what is known as the "wetted surface area" or the area inside the tank bathed in LP. As LP gas is depleted, the wetted surface area also decreases, along with the pressure the tank is able to produce. So a 60,000 gas log set installed with a 20 lb. tank will use just over 2.75 lbs. of propane per hour. After only 2 hours of operation with an ideal temperature of 60 degrees, the tank would "freeze up" or not be able to provide enough pressure to keep up with the input rating of the log set.

    What is the difference between outdoor and indoor gas logs?
    1 Answer
    Outdoor units and log sets are made with stainless steel, as opposed to plate or rolled steel. This allows them to last quite longer (rust) in an outdoor application.

    What is the difference between gas logs for outdoor and indoor?
    1 Answer
    Outdoor log sets must utilize stainless steel burners; the log sets themselves are identical for the most part.

    Is there any difference in the outdoor and indoor logs?
    1 Answer
    All outdoor logs will be made of refractory cement. They are usually hand painted, which is the most durable method. Indoor logs may be manufactured of refractory cement or ceramic fiber. Companies such as R.H. Peterson utilize the same logs for indoor and outdoor applications, as they only manufacturer refractory logs.

    Will any of your products listed as outdoor gas logs work or do I need special burners, logs, etc. since the fire pit is subject to being rained on? The fire pit sits below a screened roof which is about 15 feet above the pit.
    1 Answer
    Any of our Real Fyre refractory logs can be used in an outdoor setting without an issue. The only setback is that the logs are largely designed to be seen from only one or two sides. The setup of the sets is somewhat rectangular, rather than the 360 degree view you would need for a circular fire pit. You may consider using the Hearth Products Controls 6 Piece Woodland Ceramic Fiber Outdoor Log Set - For Fire Pits and Rings Larger than 36 Inches, as they are designed to be arranged in such a way that they will look appealing from all sides.

    What are the pros and cons between the match light and the safety pilot logs? I am looking at the RealFrye outdoor gas logs. It will be uncovered outdoors.
    1 Answer
    The match light log sets are popular, due to the fact that there is no pilot assembly to hide and with fewer components, the set tends to be more reliable. There is no valve or thermocouple to fail. The only downside is that the unit requires ignition by a match or lighter each time. The safety pilot kit will use a small standing pilot light. This allows you to control the unit by simply opening the valve. However, the standing pilot will use a small amount of fuel at all times.

    Do outdoor propane gas logs require a safety pilot? Can you match light without pilot?
    1 Answer
    Because of the increased volatility of LP, most manufacturers do indeed manufacture their burners, both indoor and outdoor, with a standing pilot assembly. The outdoor sets we carry are made in this way.

    Is there a difference between propane and natural logs for fire pits?
    1 Answer
    As far as the operation and flame appearance goes, there will not be a difference. The size of orifice needed between the two is different, as well as the operating pressures. Currently, propane is a much more costly fuel, typically costing 5 times as much as the same amount of natural gas.

    Does it really matter if they are made of concrete or porcelain?
    1 Answer
    Concrete refractory logs tend to hold up better than their ceramic counterparts and will also radiate heat. Other than differences in appearance, these would be the only primary differences between the two.
