Our fire pits are available in both liquid propane or natural gas fuel varieties.
Frequently Asked Questions
Table Top Lid

The smooth aluminum surface will add a sleek, minimalistic touch while maintaining the strength and functionality to double as a serving and entertainment table. Consider it Dekko’s way of enhancing your outdoor lounging experience — even when your fire pit is not in use!

There is no better way to protect and preserve the classic appearance of your fire pit and its components with our all seasons commercial-grade weather covers. Custom-designed and tailored to fit your fire pit, we recommend using our weather covers to preserve the longevity of your fire pit when it is not in use.
Electronic Ignition with Remote
The additional remote control function to our electronic ignition starter is a convenient way to control your unit from a distance, or if you wish to avoid kneeling to turn the chrome key. Available with most of our natural gas and propane fire pits, this option provides ease of use with a handheld remote to turn the unit on and off while only being accessible to the person holding the remote.
120vac: standard outdoor grounded power cord- simply plugs into GFCI outlet.

Our team at Dekko highly recommends investing in a wall timer for commercial projects. The wall timer feature grants you the confidence of knowing your electronic ignition fire pit is automatically scheduled to turn on and off at your convenience.
Frequently used in commercial builds and areas subject to residential codes, the E-Stop is a helpful control that will cease all power flow to our fire pits through a key-release function. The key-release function ensures that only the key holder is able to activate the power again.
Propane Tank Cover
Available in the same colour varieties as our fire pits, our propane tank covers will allow you to store your propane tanks in discrete concrete encasements. As a two-piece product with a removable lid, the flat surface of our propane tank covers may additionally serve as an end table to complete your outdoor seating and display areas.
Yes — for installation on a deck or any other combustible surface, a deck insulation kit is required. The kit includes the required basalt material and an additional instructional booklet. Please refer to the user manual for clearances when installing under a pergola or covered patio.
A certified gas technician MUST install all propane and natural gas units. If there are any issues pertaining to the burner or gas line, a certified technician should complete the service work in order to comply with local installation and service codes.
The legs of our fire pits are installed directly into the mould to yield a reliably level surface each time. If you are experiencing a teetering or wobbly leg, please ensure that the installation surface is also level.
This information is available at www.dekko.ca. Simply select the “Products” drop-down menu, then select “Fire Pits.” From here, select your desired model and follow the link entitled “click here for detailed specifications.”
Our fire pits require a level location with access to a fuel source. For fire pits with electrical ignition burners, installations also require access to an electrical source.
Yes — our fire pits are designed for all seasons’ use. In the winter, please ensure that your burner is dry and free of snow. Additionally, we offer custom-built weather covers that will ensure the best protection of your burner through all faces of winter.
Prior to connecting the gas, please ensure the valve is in the closed position by turning it clockwise. Following this, simply hold your igniter above the center of the burner and slowly turn the key valve to the on position to allow a steady gas flow. Click here to watch video.
Our fire pits do not accommodate internally stored propane tanks for safety and technical reasons.
Please refer to our EI section and review our remote starter option.
Although it is very unusual for our fire pits to crack, if a hairline crack does appear, you should not be alarmed; this is a natural characteristic of concrete and does not have the potential to grow or separate.
Although our fire pits are resistant to stains from the natural elements, any spills or accidents could result in the absorption of liquids due to the porous nature of concrete. Please be sure to blot any stains or spills immediately after contact. Please see below for our recommended steps on how to approach and remove stains.
Concrete can be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution. Never use abrasives or strong chemicals as they may further stain the surface. A spill should be cleaned immediately by carefully blotting the spill with a clean and damp white towel. Be sure to blot the affected area and avoid wiping, as this may force the stain deeper into the surface of your fire pit. If the stain persists, please contact our staff at Dekko for a color-matched touch up kit.
Our fire pits are created from 100% pure concrete and do not require any sealants or other additional protectants.
Deposits of magnesium and iron can be present on the beach stones, notably on our light and ivory stones. This is a natural reaction to heat and is not considered a defect.
All Dekko fire pits are fully certified and safe for outdoor use. The concrete shell will get warm to the touch, but not hot. Young children and pets should be supervised while in the area of the fire pit, and clothing or other flammable materials and gases should not be placed on or near the surrounding concrete ledges of your fire pit.
While our fire pits are capable of producing and radiating an impressive warmth, they are intended for aesthetic purposes only. Although we understand that you may wish to roast marshmallows over these beauties, we do not recommend multi-purposing our fire pits for cooking appliances.
If you smell gas exuding from your fire pit, please shut off the gas to the appliance immediately. If the odour continues, please call your gas supplier.
For your safety, please do not use the ledge of your fire pit as a seat or chair. Wind and gusty conditions may affect the flame in an unpredictable manner.
Solid fuels should not be burned in your fire pit. The surface of your fire pit should be clear of any leaves, sticks, wood, paper, clothing, food, or other flammable materials. In addition, any combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapours and liquids should not be placed on or near the fire table.
Do not use the appliance if any part has been submerged under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control that has been under water.
Sooting is an inherent bi-product of natural gas and propane. To limit the amount of sooting, avoid placing rocks/stones directly above the flame to avoid excessive impingement. Alternatively, soot can be removed by gently washing the stones in a mild soap and water mixture.
A reduction in your fire pits flame level may happen for various reasons depending on the variety of your pit. For natural gas pits, lower flame levels may be the result of improper gas pressure or an undersized gas supply line. For propane units, lower flame levels may be the result of improper lighting procedures. To address low flame levels, please be sure that the chrome key is in the ‘off’ positions before the tank is turned on. Please turn the tank on slowly to allow the pressure within to equalize before turning the fire pit on completely. If the aforementioned procedures fail, please check the gas level of your liquid propane tank, or remove any excess stones to ensure that the burn holes of your fire pit are not covered.
Our policy is longevity — with proper care and upkeep, your fire pit has the potential to last a lifetime.
