Winterizing your outdoor heating unit helps extend its useful. Rule #1 – Keep it out of the elements; cover the unit and store it indoors to prevent weather damage. If indoor storage is impractical, make sure it’s heavily insulated from the weather and raised off the ground to keep water from gathering around the base. Check the covering throughout the winter months to make sure your outdoor heater is well protected.
Bond’s outdoor heating units are made from a high-quality manufactured materials. Our featured material, Envirostone™, is a premium blend of resin and stone powder, sealed with our patented ProCoat™ for superior adhesion and UV resistance.
Using your gas outdoor heating unit for cooking is not recommended. These products are designed for outdoor heating purposes only.
You should NEVER burn wood in any outdoor gas heating unit. The intense heat generated by burning wood can crack the unit or clog it with soot.

You should never rest a propane tank on its side. The tank must always stand upright to provide safe gas release. Also, always place external tanks at least 5 feet from the heating unit to prevent unsafe gas exposure.
Bond does not sell a longer hose. To conceal the propane tank, we suggest using a Tank Hideaway™.
Approximately 10-15 lbs of LavaGlass is sufficient for a 20 lb heating unit. Please note: the bottom half of the firebowl should be filled with lava rock and the rest with LavaGlass. The relative low density of the lava rock creates better air circulation.
Yes, while Bond provides many filler options, any fire glass with a minimum size of ½ inch can be used safely. Bond does not recommend using ¼ inch fire glass in outdoor heating units as the smaller glass pieces can clog the burner and ignition guard. The entire firebowl should not be filled with fire glass alone. The base of the fire pan should be filled with lava rock to allow for better air circulation.
