Everybody loves the ambiance, atmosphere and conversation that goes on around a fire pit. Enjoying the fire pit is the easy part, but figuring out how to hide a propane hose for a fire pit is a little trickier.
If you’re looking for a way to enjoy your propane fire pit without the aesthetic hassles, look no further. We’ve put together a guide with some creative ideas on hiding your propane hose.
What’s a Propane Fire Pit?
When you purchase a fire pit, the two most popular options are a natural gas pit or a propane fire fit.
Propane is refined natural gas and burns hotter and cleaner than natural gas. Ultimately, it is a more efficient gas fuel, and a propane fire pit requires less time and work to install.
While propane is easier, more readily available and easier to store and transport, it does need to be stored in a propane tank that connects to your fire pit with a hose. Whenever you turn on a propane fire pit, you should always make sure there are no leaks to ensure your safety.
Propane tanks are often small and portable, making them easy to replace or reallocate if needed. However, they do require a hose — but with a little creativity, it can be hidden to elevate your outdoor design.
Easy Ways to Hide a Propane Fire Pit Hose
You can cleverly incorporate your hose into a yard layout, like along a paver edge. You can also hide it among the greenery or landscaping around your outside space. Or, you can place your fire pit on top of a rug, making a hole the width of the hose to snake it under the propane tank.
If your fire pit is on a deck, you can make a small hole in your deck below the unit and run the hose underneath. If the length of the hose is sufficient, it can be added to go to the side of your house and blend into the exterior. All of these are easily adaptable, or you can create a more permanent solution.
A Permanent Solution for Hiding a Propane Hose For a Fire Pit
You do have an option to run a permanent gas line underground using a hard line pipe (HLP) from your tank to the fire pit. If your tank is larger and you want to hide that as well, this is a great solution.
