L-H2-010
PRE-INSTALLATION AND PREPARATION SAFETY GUIDELINES
This fireplace is designed to be installed with select R.H.P. vented/unvented gas appliances. The following
3 sections of warnings apply to this complete setup type:
A. Before installing this unit, check the MINIMUM CLEARANCE TO COMBUSTIBLES section to ensure that the
surrounding area is properly sized for the installation.
B. The unit is for outdoor use only. DO NOT install or use this appliance inside a building, garage, or any other
enclosed area, including recreational vehicles and/or boats. THIS UNIT MUST BE INSTALLED IN SUCH
A MANNER THAT ALL VENT OPENINGS ON THE FIREPLACE REMAIN CLEAR AND FREE OF ALL
OBSTRUCTIONS AT ALL TIMES AND DURING ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS.
C. SOLID FUEL MUST NOT BE BURNED in the fireplace.
D. CHECK GAS TYPE (natural gas or propane): The gas supply you intend to use may not be the same as that
stated on the burner rating plate as purchased. If the gas supply is different, DO NOT INSTALL, and contact
the dealer for assistance.
E. FOR NATURAL GAS: The minimum inlet gas-supply pressure for purposes of input adjustment is 5" water
column (w.c.), and the maximum inlet gas-supply pressure is 10.5 " w.c.
FOR PROPANE GAS: The minimum inlet gas-supply pressure for purposes of input adjustment is 8" w.c., and
the maximum inlet gas-supply pressure is 13" w.c. DO NOT INSTALL THE GAS APPLIANCE IF MINIMUM
PRESSURE IS NOT AVAILABLE OR IF MAXIMUM PRESSURE IS EXCEEDED.
F. The gas piping system must be sized to provide minimum inlet pressure at the maximum flow rate
(BTU/hr). Undue pressure loss will occur if the pipe is too small, or the run is too long. Gas supply pipe must
be 1/2" minimum interior diameter. If the gas line is longer than 20', a larger diameter line may be necessary.
Refer to the NFPA 54 guidelines for further details.
G. For installations at elevations above 2,000 ft., contact your local dealer or gas supplier before installing. Input
ratings should be reduced approximately 4% for each 1,000 ft. above sea level. Refer to the National Fuel Gas
Code.
H. The gas appliance and the individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas-supply piping system
during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa). This is accomplished
by closing the gas-supply line valve. The unit must be isolated from the gas-supply piping system by closing its
individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas-supply piping system at test pressures
equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa).
I.
When a gas appliance is for connection to a fixed piping system, the installation must conform with local codes,
or in the absence of local codes with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54; International Fuel
Gas Code, Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code, CSA B149.1; or Propane Storage and Handling Code,
B149.2, as applicable. The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in accordance with local
codes, or in the absence of local codes with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70; or the Canadian
Electrical Code, CSA C22.1, if applicable.
J. INSTALLER NOTE: This unit should be installed so that it can be removed if service is required.
K. GAS-SUPPLY PLUMBING REQUIREMENTS
Apply only joint compounds that are resistant to all gasses on all male pipe fittings. Make sure to tighten every
joint securely. Do not use pipe joint compound to connect flare fittings. Bring the gas-supply pipe up from
beneath the hearth or directly behind the hearth as appropriate for your installation.
CAUTION:
Installation and maintenance must be done by an NFI Certified or other qualified professional service
technician. Installer, read these instructions (and all other instructions provided with separately
purchased product) before installing. Be sure you understand all safety precautions and warnings
contained in the manual(s).
Note: An external on/off valve in the gas line is optional for safety when the unit is not in use. It also
provides for convenient maintenance and repair.

23
SERVICING AND CLEANING
Each installation site for any unit presents its own unique combustion environment. Specific factors such as weather,
wind currents, yard debris, altitude, drafts, the size of the surrounding area, all have an influence on the proper
operation of the gas appliance. A normally operating appliance will demonstrate the following characteristics:
• A lively, realistic yellow flame
• Odor-free
If the flame is not clean (identifiable by excessive sooting on the decorative media), refer to the information below.
Some soot on the media may occur and should not be a concern unless excessive.
• Cover your fireplace opening with a screen/protector plate whenever it is not in use, and follow the guidelines
below at least annually.
ANNUAL CLEAN / INSPECTION GUIDELINES
The fireplace, gas appliance, and installation must be inspected annually. Refer to these instructions and the
appliance owner's manual for details. Performing these procedures will ensure proper operation, appearance,
and safety. WEAR GLOVES.
If maintenance is required, it must be done by a qualified professional service technician.
• Always shut off the gas to the appliance while performing service work.
• Allow the appliance to cool before servicing.
• The entire appliance should be inspected regularly:
Excessive debris can build up on the fireplace or appliance from leaves, dirt, or other debris. It is critical
that all control components, burners, vent openings, and the surrounding area be kept clean and free of all
obstructions.
Examine that all components are properly assembled / installed as instructed in this manual and the appliance
owner's manual.
Ensure that all decorative media is properly placed as instructed in the appliance owner's manual.
• The appliance must be replaced prior to being put into operation if it is evident that the appliance is damaged.
Contact your local dealer for replacement parts.
• DO NOT use substitute materials when replacing any components of the fireplace or appliance.
• Keep the vent openings and surrounding area of the of the fireplace clean and free of obstructions
at all times.
• Periodically perform visual checks of the burner flames. The burner flames should be blue at the base with
a combination of blue/yellow at the body and tips. Contact a qualified professional service technician for
maintenance.
• To maintain the concrete components, see the CONCRETE CARE section for details.
• Any guard or other protective device removed for servicing the appliance shall be replaced prior to operating
the appliance.
• Verify proper operation after servicing.
CAUTION: HOT DURING OPERATION AND AFTER USE. Children must be supervised when in the
vicinity of this fireplace. Serious injury may occur! Children must be alerted to the hazard
of high surface temperatures and should stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition.
24
SERVICING AND CLEANING (cont.)
CONCRETE CARE
As with any surface, concrete components require regular maintenance and care. Certain guidelines must be
followed to preserve the concrete's appearance and structural integrity.
• Scratches may occur due to usage. To minimize, avoid striking or dragging heavy, rough, or sharp objects
across the unit.
• Spotting and hairline cracks may occur due to nature of product and are not considered a
manufacturing defect.
• Concrete products are porous and susceptible to discoloration from liquids (especially oils and acidic
substances). During use, clean up any spills immediately to prevent any possible staining or damage to the
finish. Avoid allowing water (or any liquid / substance) to stand on the surface.
• To clean the concrete, first wash with a mild soap and water solution. For stubborn stains, a vinyl brush
may be used. Allow to dry. Annually, follow up with a masonry sealer in order to preserve the finish.
• It should be noted that, like natural stone, concrete products will develop a patina when left outside. No two
concrete products are identically the same and the finish will vary.
TROUBLESHOOTING
If you have trouble with your gas appliance, please refer to the owner's manual provided with it. By trying one
or more of the solutions to the probable cause, you should be able to solve the problem. If the manual does not
address your present problem, or if you have other technical difficulties with your appliance, please contact your
local dealer or visit our web site at www.rhpeterson.com.
