FIRE PIT DISCLAIMER
Here is a summary of our best tips for preventing your fire pit from rusting:
• Water + Oxygen + Metal = Oxidation aka rust.
• Check the weather before planning a bonfire and make sure no rain is expected.
• Clean the fire pit of all ash after it has completely burned out and cooled down.
• Cover the fire pit with a UV and/or waterproof cover.
• Apply a light coat of any common food oil to any exposed metal if the fire pit will not be used for an extended period of time or you live in a high-humidity area like on the coast.
• Check your fire pit a day before each use to spot and fix any early signs of rust.
• Store your fire pit off the ground, under shelter, or indoors if possible.
• Only burn well-seasoned hardwoods to prevent tree sap building up.
Removing, or at least, reducing the amount of water or moisture your fire pit comes in contact with eliminates or significantly slows down the formation of rust.
Wire brush it and spray it with high heat stove paint that can be found at your local hardware store.
