Just found a patent for what you may be looking for. Patent number 3,038,064 from 1962 for a "decorative torch" by John H. Gieb. A large basin with a gas jet in the middle filled with water for yard or patio. I did the search on goggle patent search and can't figure out how to link to the thing. Maybe someone out there can help with a link or some pic's. This may be just the thing your after. Enjoy.

poptiki,

I have searched the WWW for days trying to find info on this subject. Did use use a regulator (like the ones on grills)? What did you use to ignite the flame? Any help here would be much appreciated.....

Thanks,

Chris

I've been looking around for something like this for years. I finally stumble upon this. It's quite a bit out of my price range (expect a starting price near $2.5k), but I thought I'd at least share.

Investigating it further, I found that the manufacturer is Fire By Design. ( firebydesign.com )

They also seem to make a lot of cool Tiki torches too. Anyone who has money to burn (ha ha) might want to check them out.

Save yourself a fortune and buy the stainless fittings from McMaster Carr, and then the gas part from them, or another vendor. You should be able to put it together for about $200, depending on how many flames you want. $500 max.

Have you considered fire glass instead of water? Its much cheaper and probably lasts a LOT longer.

The red fire glass mixed with the lava rock looks like it would create a cool looking volcano or molten lava.

The water/fire pit definitely looks cooler than the fire glass version... here is my propane fire pit with glass. The burner has a "solar" shape to it and I used mosaic glass beads to outline the flame pattern so it looks neat whether it is on or off. I like it because you can have a quick sit outside and turn it on. Unlike a real fire pit, its quick to start and easy to shut off when your done. But, the fire coming out of water would have a lot more wow factor I think.







I've got all the parts to convert it to natural gas and hope to do that next summer to avoid having to fill the tank again.
