Frequently Asked Questions

We answer some commonly asked questions about fire and water bowls.

Fire and water bowls work by combining a gas-fed fire feature with a water feature. The fire is fueled by either natural gas or propane, and a burner within the bowl ignites the gas to create a flame. The water feature is typically integrated with the pool's plumbing system and may take the form of a scupper, waterfall, or fountain. The water flows through or around the fire, creating a captivating interplay of the two elements.

The best material for a fire bowl will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Each material - copper, stainless steel, and GRFC concrete - offers unique benefits in terms of durability and appearance:
  • Copper: Develops a beautiful patina over time, giving it a timeless, classic appeal. It is also highly resistant to corrosion and has excellent heat resistance. Copper is a perennial best seller across brands.
  • Stainless steel: Offers a sleek, modern look and is highly durable, with excellent corrosion and heat resistance.
  • GRFC concrete: Provides versatility in design, color, and texture options, while also being highly durable and resistant to outdoor elements.

Yes, it is possible to add a fire bowl to an existing pool. However, this process will require some modifications to your pool's plumbing and gas systems to accommodate the new feature. It is recommended that you consult with a professional pool designer or contractor to ensure proper integration and adherence to safety standards.

Most fire and water bowls can be configured for use with either natural gas or propane, depending on your fuel source preference and availability. However, it is essential to check with the manufacturer or consult a professional to ensure compatibility and proper configuration for your specific fire and water bowl model.

The cost of adding a fire bowl to a pool can vary depending on factors such as the type and size of the fire bowl, materials used, burner options, and installation expenses. On average, fire bowls can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 or more, with additional costs for installation, gas lines, and electrical work.

The primary purpose of a fire and water bowl is to enhance the visual appeal and ambiance of an outdoor space, particularly around swimming pools. They create a striking focal point and offer a unique combination of fire and water elements, which can provide a captivating and relaxing atmosphere for entertaining and enjoyment.

Several types of water features can be combined with fire bowls, including scuppers, waterfalls, and fountains. Scuppers are openings in the bowl through which water flows, creating a sheet of water that cascades into the pool. Waterfalls can be designed to flow over or around the fire bowl, while fountains can spray water into the air, creating an eye-catching display.

Integrating fire and water bowls into pool designs offers several benefits, including:
  • Enhanced visual appeal and luxury aesthetic
  • A captivating focal point for outdoor spaces
  • A unique combination of fire and water elements
  • An inviting atmosphere for relaxation and entertainment
  • Increased property value

To choose the right fire bowl for your pool design, consider the following factors:
  • Material: Select a material (copper, stainless steel, or GRFC concrete) that complements your overall design and meets your durability requirements.
  • Size and scale: Choose a fire bowl that is proportionate to your pool size and the surrounding outdoor space.
  • Burner options: Consider the various burner options, such as bullet burners or torpedo burners, to find one that meets your performance and aesthetic preferences.
  • Design style and finishes: Select a fire bowl with a design style and finish (e.g., patina, scuppers) that aligns with your desired ambiance and pool aesthetic.
  • Consulting with a professional pool designer or contractor can also help you make an informed decision based on their expertise and experience.

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your fire and water bowls will help ensure their longevity and performance. Some maintenance tips include:
  1. Removing debris and cleaning the bowl's surface with a mild detergent and water.
  2. Inspecting and cleaning the burner, gas lines, and connections regularly to ensure proper function.
  3. Checking for signs of corrosion or damage and addressing any issues promptly.
  4. Cleaning and maintaining the water feature components, such as scuppers or waterfalls, to prevent clogs and maintain optimal water flow.
  5. Winterizing your fire and water bowls in colder climates by draining water, disconnecting gas lines, and protecting the bowl with a cover or storing it indoors.

There are several burner options available for fire bowls, including bullet burners and torpedo burners. Bullet burners are designed to produce a taller, fuller flame with improved fuel efficiency, while torpedo burners create a more linear flame pattern. The choice of burner will depend on your aesthetic preferences and desired flame effect.

To enhance the visual impact of your fire and water bowls:
  • Place them strategically around your pool to create a captivating focal point.
  • Consider using multiple fire and water bowls to create symmetry or a more dramatic effect.
  • Choose fire bowls with unique design elements or finishes, such as patina or scuppers, that align with your desired pool aesthetic.
  • Incorporate ambient lighting around your fire and water bowls to highlight their features during nighttime use.
