    Is this lighter suitable for outdoor use or is rust a problem?
    1 Answer
    Rust would definitely become an issue with cast iron. I recommend using a stainless steel log lighter

    Can you add more than one of the log lighters?
    1 Answer
    Absolutely. You would simply need to remove the plug from one end and install a plumbing coupler in order to attach the next log lighter in line.

    Robin Haynes
    from Durham, North Carolina asked:
    December 28, 2016
    Does this log lighter require a pressure regulator?
    1 Answer
    With natural gas, a pressure regulator would only be needed if you had excessive pressure supplied to the hearth opening. In this case, a plumber or gas fitter may install a pressure regulator upstream of the log lighter. Please note that a pressure test to confirm the log lighter is being supplied with less than .5 psi is normally performed by a licensed plumber or gas fitter after the proper diameter pipe fittings are run to the fireplace opening by this same technician. As such, I recommend contacting a licensed plumber or gas fitter for further consultation if pipe and a corresponding 1/2" pipe stub has not already been run into the fireplace opening.

    from San Francisco, CA asked:
    April 4, 2012
    What is the BTU requirement? Could I use two of them in one fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Per the manufacturer, there is not a listed BTU requirement for this unit, nor is there a rating. It will simply need to be connected to a 1/2" N.P.T. pipe thread fitting. There is no reason why the incoming gas line could not be tee'd, in order for you to utilize a pair of these lighters.

    from Enumclaw, WA asked:
    November 16, 2011
    Does the lighter have 10 holes on each side or just one side? Do they face forward or back? How does this effect or limit which side the plumbing enters from?
    1 Answer
    This lighter will have gas ports on one side only and the ports will be intended to face the front of the fireplace. The lighter is tapped and threaded to accept a gas line from either the left or right side of the fireplace and is provided with a plug to cap off the unused side. This will allow for greater versatility during installation.

    Really heavy duty
    This unit is very heavy duty. It also is raised above the bottom of the fire box and has a flange over the burner holes which should keep ashes out of them.

    Great starter
    Using this in an outdoor fireplace. Great product. Easy to install. Very durable as advertised. The feet make it easy to clean ash from under it.
    ProsSolid Durable Gas holes covered enough for ash not to clog them Could connect two together to make 28”

    Best log lighter on the market
    This log lighter is great. The legs prevent sagging and bending while the hood protects from debris falling inside. I was worried that it might be too tall to work with a standard log lighter line but it surprised me by being just right so I didnā€™t need any elbows. It was a bit shorter than the one I replaced but a 4 inch piece of pipe centered it perfectly in the fireplace.
    ProsSturdy, protected from debris falling inside, legs to prevent sagging or bending over time.
    ConsA bit shorter than I would have liked.

    Great lighter- easy to install
    Works great. Works almost as well as the HearthMaster and looks slightly nicer and a tiny bit easier to install. Significantly more expensive then the HearthMaster. So nice product not the best bang for your buck.

    Easy Fix
    With just a little muscle, a couple of pipe wrenches, and a new 1/2 steel nipple I spent about 20 minutes giving my fireplace some much needed service. Love those REAL wood fires!

    Very Solid. Well constructed. Attractive. Pipe coming from side of fireplace must be about 1.5 inch to center in height and more or less straight otherwise the legs won't be even. And better placed toward the back as the flames come out the front as opposed to straight up
