"Life Is Short, Enjoy The View"

  • Because the fireplace/bbq island is constructed from GFRC, a concrete product, and the color is CAST all the way through, you can clean the unit like you would other concrete surfaces.
  • The fireplace/bbq island can be hosed off to remove most of the dust.
  • Before re-sealing or to remove stubborn stains, the entire fireplace/bbq island should be thoroughly cleaned.
  • Use CLR, a concrete cleaner which can be purchased from Home Depot, and a nylon scrub brush, taking care to rise off the residue. Follow the instruction on the package!

  • Your fireplace/bbq island comes from the factory sealed with multiple coats of a non-glossy, penetrating concrete sealer.
  • Application of a similar product semi-annually is recommended, however there is nothing that can protect against pollution and/or acid rain which could stain the finish.
  • For best results, perform during cooler AM/PM temperatures:
  • Clean the entire fireplace with CLR (information above).
  • Allow fireplace to dry completely.
  • Apply masonry sealer to entire fireplace/bbq island (a sponge works well for this application).

  • If you have purchased a screen, although it has been powder-coated, it is still an iron product. During long periods of moisture, screens should be stored away from the elements. If areas of rust occur, they can be treated with any exterior rust-proof flat-black paint.

  • Please see "CLEANING" above for maintenance on the exterior.
  • It is necessary to keep the water level above the pump. To view water level, access the reservoir through the trap door on the left side. Move the glass aside then slide away door in screen. Distilled Water is recommended OR Algaecide & De-Lime products for Fountains should be used to control algae & lime.

  • In freeze-thaw areas, the fireplace must be covered to keep the elements from collecting inside of the fireplace.
  • Our fireplaces are designed to utilized gas as the fuel source. Wood-burning will void the warranty.
