    lava rock size???

    I have the smaller lava rock for my natural gas fire pit and I think it's clogging the holes on my gas holes. Thinking of switching to large lava rock or a combo to get them all pumping flame. Any thoughts?

    It shouldn't make much of a difference in the fire pit working or not, but different sizes of rock will give somewhat different visual effects.

    im hoping to reduce the double gas tube ring effect by maybe using bigger rocks to disperse the flame differently. i guess it will be trial and error - maybe a mixture of small and large rocks.
