1. Keep the fire pit clean and free of debris that retains moisture and aids rusting

2. Protect the fire pit from rain and moisture by using a well-fitting cover, or by storing the fire pit in a garage or shed to hinder rust formation

3. Use a natural heat-resistant barrier in the fire pit bowl, like sand or lava rock, between the fire and the fire pit’s metal to protect the finish and preserve metal strength

4. Inspect the fire pit regularly for early signs of rust.

5. If any damage or rust is detected, do NOT operate your firepit, until all necessary repairs have been carried out in full
