We just signed a contract with our PB, and I will be starting a thread soon with pics
However, a key part of our design is going to be 4 gas tiki torches. We ordered 4 of these and received yesterday: https://www.buytikitorches.com/store...&product_id=74
They are bigger than they look on the website, but in a good way. However, the pole they come with is TALL. It is basically a 2 part pole...a 27" base that can be mostly buried in ground, with a 8' pole that attaches to the base. Assuming we put the 27" base in concrete, that still leaves the torch head over 8' high.
1) Is there any code restrictions for gas torch height? 8' will look way to high in our setting. 6 1/2' would be about the max.
2) We are not getting a heater, and have a 7" wc (1/4psi) 260k btu gas meter currently. The tiki docs say each consumes up to 49,000 btu (49cu/ft/hr) so approx 200k btu for all four tikis. Considering all the other gas appliances in the house, we will be way over. I am guessing my only option is to upgrade my gas meter to a 2# meter...of course the gas company charges $412 for that
If anyone has gone through this type of build, any help would be much appreciated. They will start digging soon.
