Breeo fire pits are excellent because you don’t have to build them into the ground. Although some Breeo fire pits are heavy, they’re portable, meaning you can use them on various surfaces. So, you might wonder if you can use a Breeo fire pit on a paver patio.

You can use a Breeo fire pit on a paver patio because pavers are generally made of fire-resistant materials like stone, concrete, or brick. However, using it on a paver patio is even safer if you also use a Breeo base. The base will add extra protection, ensuring your deck is undamaged.

This article will discuss how to use a Breeo fire pit on a paver patio. It will also discuss which surfaces are safest for it and some of the top safety tips, so keep reading to learn more!

How To Use a Breeo Fire Pit on a Paver Patio

Thankfully, using a Breeo fire pit on a paver patio is much easier than building one from scratch. Plus, the fire pit will arrive at your doorstep fully assembled. So, all you have to do is open the box, and it’s ready to go!

Even though the process is relatively simple, I’ll discuss the steps below.

Purchase a Breeo Base

First, you want to purchase a Breeo base to go with your Breeo fire pit. An example is the Breeo Base X30 (available on Amazon.com). This base is compatible with the X30 fire pit model, but you can also find bases compatible with the X19 and X24 models on Amazon.

It’s made of stainless steel, so it’s highly durable and easy to clean and maintain. Plus, it will add an extra layer of protection for your paver patio, making it less likely to get damaged by things like heat and ashes. Once you’ve received your Breeo base is ready, you can go to the next step.

Place the Breeo Base on the Paver Patio

Put your Breeo base on the paver patio, and be sure to place it in the position you plan on using it–this is because you won’t be able to move it once you place the fire pit on top and start lighting a fire.

Additionally, ensure the surface is flat. If using the fire pit on a paver patio, you shouldn’t have to worry about this because the surface should be flat. 

Put Your Breeo Fire Pit on the Breeo Base 

Once you’ve got the fire pit base in place, you can put the fire pit on top. Ensure each fire pit leg is at each corner of the Breeo base–this ensures it’s well-balanced and won’t fall over.

Then, you’re ready to prepare your Breeo pit for a fire! To do so, fill it with wood and fuel and light it up.

What Surfaces Are Safe for a Breeo Fire Pit?

Any fire-resistant surfaces like rock and stone are safe for a Breeo fire pit. Most paver patios should be fire-resistant, so you can safely use your pit on one of those.

According to the Series X user manual, you should avoid placing a Breeo fire pit on wood and composite decks. However, you can put it on wood if using a Breeo base and spark screen. A spark screen protects the surfaces around and below the fire pit and protects people from hot ashes.

Avoid anything that may catch fire easily, and never use your Breeo fire pit indoors (even if the floor surface is fire-resistant). There’s not as much ventilation indoors, so carbon monoxide poisoning would be more likely.

Breeo Fire Pit Safety Tips

Knowing whether or not you can use a Breeo fire pit on a paver patio is only one safety aspect to consider. Now that you know it’s safe to use on a paver patio, you should consider other things, like how far the pit should be from buildings.

Don’t Use the Breeo Fire Pit Near a Building

When using a Breeo fire pit, ensure it’s not too close to any buildings. It should be at least 10 feet (approximately 3 meters) away from your home and other facilities. So, avoid using it on your paver patio if it is closer than 10 feet (3 meters) to your home or another structure.

Placing a Breeo fire pit too close to a building makes it easier for hot ashes to get onto the building, and a fire could start. Ashes can retain heat for long periods, so you want to avoid getting them on nearby buildings. 

Don’t Use the Breeo Fire Pit Near Trees and Plants

While you shouldn’t use your Breeo fire pit near buildings, you also shouldn’t use it near trees and plants. Like buildings, trees and plants can also light on fire or become damaged if they get too hot, which can be highly dangerous.

There should be at least 10 feet (approximately 3 meters) of space between fire pits and trees.

Don’t Touch the Fire Pit or Base When Hot

Some Breeo fire pits are fully metal, while others only contain some metal. As you may know, metal is a good heat conductor, which is why it gets hot quickly and easily. If you touch the metal on your fire pit while it’s hot, you may burn yourself

So whether your Breeo fire pit only has a tiny bit of metal or is made entirely of metal, avoid touching it when the fire is going. You should also avoid touching the paver patio if there’s a chance it’s hot from the fire pit.

The Breeo bases may also have metal, so avoid touching them when hot. Before touching and cleaning the fire pit and Breeo base, wait until everything has thoroughly cooled.

Conclusion 

You can use a Breeo fire pit on a paver patio because most pavers are fire-resistant (like stone and concrete). Consider using a Breeo base underneath the fire pit for extra safety and protection. However, you must make sure there are at least 10 feet (3 meters) between the Breeo fire pit and any buildings or plants. 

If your paver patio is beside a wall or other structure, avoid using the fire pit there, as the structure is more likely to catch fire or become damaged.
