Spark Ignition for Fire Pits

Fire Pit Spark Ignition is a push-button battery-powered ignition system that is used to light the fire pit burner. It is one step up from the basic Match Lit Fire Pit in that you are still required to light the fire pit manually, but you do this without the need for a match or taper.

The Push Button Unit connects to a spark igniter probe fitted to the fire pit tray base. Pushing the ignitor button causes the probe to spark, igniting the gas.

Simple Fire Pit Spark Ignition Kits like the one shown can be retrofitted into existing fire pit pans. Most brands offer a stand-alone kit for this purpose.

Spark Ignition Flame Sensing Fire Pit Kits

As you can see from the products above there are a few which are also Flame Sensing Fire Pit Kits. These have additional safety features which will shut down the fire pit in the event of flame failure.

This flame-sensing technology is reflected in the price. 

Instead of a Key Valve there is a more sophisticated control box.
