- Consult local codes, certified professionals and building officials before you install a fire bowl, regardless of what it uses for fuel. Codes can vary from city to city so some might be illegal in your area.
- Ensure that the area around it free from foliage or branches that can catch fire. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that there should be at least six feet of clear space around the bowl.
- Most fire bowls that burn wood come with a mesh cover. Once you light the fire, use the screen to keep the sparks from floating out of the bowl.
- Never leave the fire unattended. Keep a bucket of cold ashes, dirt, or sandy nearby, along with a metal rake or shovel.
- Even if you want to spend more time rocking than building the fire, do not use accelerants like gasoline or charcoal fluid to light the fire.
- Take wind into consideration when you decide the type and placement of the fire bowl. Burning embers can be blown out of the bowl so choose a protected area.
- Remember that metal gets hot so let it thoroughly cool first before you attempt to remove the bowl or handle its cover.
- Ensure that the fire bowl that you use has been approved for its use. With the wrong material, it can shatter or explode.
And now that you are aware of the most important safety rules with having a fire bowl, choose one that comes with a beauty and style that will fit its surroundings.
