Sonoma 38 Inch GFRC Fire Pit Bowl

The Sonoma Fire Pit Bowl is manufactured by The Outdoor Plus Company at their facility in California. The company is rightly proud of its Made In America status.

Sonoma means the ‘valley of the moon’, which was the inspiration for this half-moon shaped fire bowl.

Every bowl is handcrafted from color-matched GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete). The color is cast throughout the concrete.

Manufacturing a Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Fire Bowl results in a much lighter, but more robust product than standard concrete. Glass fibers set into the concrete prevent distortion, cracking, and rust.

Gas Type

With the Sonoma 38 Inch Fire Pit Bowl be sure to select the correct gas type as the Natural Gas setup cannot be used with Propane and vice versa.


Ignition Options

Match Lit

The Match Lit system requires a gas valve (not included) such as a chrome key valve to be installed, within arms reach of the fire bowl, to light the burner.

Then you simply turn the key to the on position and light the gas with a match, taper, or lighter. The flame can be adjusted and turned off using the key valve.

12VAC Electronic Ignition – Low Voltage (CSA Certified)

Low-voltage Electronic Ignition systems should be utilized when the installation is close to water features, fountains, etc., and are ideal to use with fire pits for pools.

The Electronic Ignition system also has Flame Sensing that will also automatically relight if the flame is blown out. 

The Units can be wired up to an on/off switch, a timer, remote control, pool controller, or smart house system. An upgrade which includes a Bluetooth system is available. It is both Android and Apple iOS compatible.

Because a GFRC fire bowl is made to order, there will be slight variations in each order’s final color and texture.

Once you have selected your color, we recommend that you request a sample of your color choice for your final approval. Each of The Outdoor Plus Company’s fire pits is made to order; therefore, all sales are final.

You can call using our toll-free number (top of the page) or use the ‘Contact Us‘ form and let us know your color choice and provide an address where we can have a color sample sent.
