Being Profitable in Business

Hello, my name is Damian and this is my new business blog. I am quite a novice in the world of business. I only started my company last year and it is only a small operation that I run part time out of my garage. I am lucky to have a friend who has been a businessman for many years, as he can offer me some fantastic advice. I wanted to start this blog to so I could share what I have learnt as I continue on my journey into the exciting world of business. I hope you find my blog useful.

Propane Fire Pits for a Resort: What You Need for the Safety of Your Clients

Resorts and holiday destinations are an excellent business idea for making big pennies. However, it's not easy to beat the competition and keep visitors flocking to your facility. The secret lies in paying attention to tiny details that will make the stay memorable for your visitors. For instance, a propane fire resort keeps your guests warm at night, allowing them to make the most of the night during the vacation. However, they need to be safe despite all the fun they want to have during their stay. Use these straightforward ideas to ensure safety around your propane fire pits:

Select the Right Spot for the Propane Pit

Unlike natural gas, propane pits derive their combustion power from propane tanks. These tanks can be moved from one place to another on your property. Since the burning mechanism is gaseous, you need to keep it far from buildings and other structures around. Make sure that the fire pit is at least ten feet away from other outdoor structures. To add on that, you must pay attention to any pipes and electricity cables fitted close to the propane pit. They should also be ten feet away to mitigate the risk of any breakouts.

Clean the Area around the Propane Pit

With many objects around the propane pit, there is a high likelihood of ignition. The fire can spread very fast and spiral out of control because of an available medium of transfer. Imperatively, the area around the propane pit should be cleaned every morning after being used by the visitors. Furthermore, do not keep flammable stuff such as paint and aerosol cans around anywhere near the propane pit.  

Cut Off the Gas Supply in an Emergency Situations

Should a fire break out accidentally, your first response should be to cut off the gas supply to the pit. Continued gas supply in an emergency means that the fire has fuel and will continue to spread. Note that some outbreaks may be big, and you won't be able to cut off the gas supply. In such cases, pour water or sand generously over the propane pit. This will help you contain the fire as you wait for the fire department.

Do Not Use Additional Fuel

Naturally, propane is flammable. You don't have to use additional fuel such as paraffin, petrol or wood. This will minimise the risk of an accidental outbreak. Remember to put a screen over the pit to contain sparks.
