This water feature was built to be movable and not a permanent structure. We can build any size or shape with any material. Typically these would be grouted in place after installation. Fire can be added almost anywhere. The VortexED fires were added on each back ledge.
Now we will take you through a step by step from building to installation and final operation.
Some of the pictures may appear to be the same, but they are from different perspectives and angles. We are trying to show you as much detail as possible.
The outer seating ring was transported on it's own flat crate and then simply slid onto the basin.
The rear side panels for access were attached with industrial Velcro for easy opening and access to the controls and electrical.
The complete unit was 36" tall and 72" wide when finished. The base was 18" tall with seating on the outer edge and the back wall was 18" above the basin. The two VortexED Fires were 18" withe the two back panels in reflective, making it look like several fires inside of the VortexED.
This was installed with L.E.D and incandescent rope lighting. You had both options of lighting or use both. The lighting was under the inside lip, outer lip and on the back wall.
This unit/ feature was built (in 12 2013) for $6,500.00 plus tile (not included) (or what ever material you like) plus installation and or delivery. Crating may apply if you need this shipped. It is recommended to grout these on the job site. Any questions, please call or e mail.
The fire pit below is going to be installed in Sacramento on 11 14 09 for the Yard Crashers/ DIY/ HGTV show. After it is and has been installed we will post pictures on the Yard Crashers page. In the mean time here is the how to and why. We can build any size, shape, design feature you desire. We build to your imagination.
Below is the catch basin to hold the water for the feature
Above you see the auto fill?

Below you can see the pump has been turned on.
and now the fire.
We placed a card board template to replicate the table top to conceal the lights as well.
Now we add color to the water!
Here is the feature exposed with the blue water. You can change the water to any color you like.
This feature is only 6 1/2" tall. You can mount this under the table top and keep it only an inch or so above the surface of the table top.
So let's change it to red water and add Starfire Base Glass.
Remember, we build to your imagination!
The finished pictures will be posted on the Yard Crashers page when this project is installed after 11 14 09!

The next fire table was built by Brian Johnson of Omaha Nebraska, very nice! We supplied the components and Brian did the hard part, the table.
The blue is actually food coloring.
