[Costco] Venturi Spiral Flame Patio Heater ($375)
The photos are from Costco Guelph.
This thing is absolutely beautiful to watch and to use as a light. The first time I hooked it up I stared at it for 3 hours straight.

That sounds legit. I used a proper conversion kit from propane to natural gas for my fire-table, but I guess to each his ownAll you need is a drill with a tiny drillbit and some foiltape

Just checked, mine is the same brand and I do see a tiny bit of rust but only on the latches. Can just paint them or something but it doesn't bother me so far. I store it on the patio and I cover it for the winterChicoQuente wrote: ↑ We bought one of these 2 years ago and have been happy with it. We use it on our covered patio and are pretty content with the heat in to later fall for sure.
If there's one complaint I have it is that it starts to rust very quickly. We store ours in the garage during winter and summer as we don't use it then and during spring and fall it is completely sheltered from direct rain however less than a year in there was noticeable rust on a lot of the unpainted metal. It seems to be a a low grade material.

Bruh..... I was j/k can't believe you made this elaborate post, lol. I still recommend the conversion kit, for the quick disconnect coupler convenience if nothing else.elfion wrote: ↑ It is legit. What do you think a converter is? It's the
exact same part (like a tiny copper nozzle) with a slightly larger hole. The foil is to close off an air intake hole in a part that doesn't heat up. If you don't do it then the flame will look crappy (blue instead of orange).
It's not rocket science. Propane from a tank comes out under a lot of pressure. The natural gas from the pipe is coming with very low pressure. Therefore you need a bigger hole for natural gas. So you take out the burner (looks like a tiny copper fitting similar to those used for water plumbing or a nut maybe) and you see a tiny hole. And then you make the hole a little bigger. How much bigger? You get a drillbit set and you find the next bigger drillbit and you try if this is enough. It needs to be maybe about 1.5 times larger in diameter, but dont quote me on this. That's all there is to it. And then you also see these large holes for mixing in air in the sides of the bigger pipe that the burner is screwed into. You simply tape them. And then it works perfectly. If you don't tape them nothing bad will happen..it's just not going to look how it's supposed to look

and it was a little funny admittedly, yes. but some people can take it the wrong way. There is a bit too much stigma around gas. Even I thought about the conversation process as something mysterious before I realized that it literally takes 30 minutes to do. To each its own like you said but to me slightly modifying the part I know will definitely fit the thread is easier than any conversion kit. But maybe others feel differently

I did that actually. And not sure what I did know or maybe the table was not in line with the gas specs but my estimate ended up being higher than needed. which is why I was happy that I followed advice from a guy on YouTube and went with the lowest possible increments. For me 1 or 2 sizes up was enough.
