What is the proper media base for lite stones and lite stone balls?

We recommend using a base layer of Small Black Lava to insulate the burner and then you can use the larger pieces as a decorative topping.
Which tab should I use in your calculator for Tumbled Lava Stone?
Tumbled lava rocks have similar density to fire glass.
Do I cover the burner with fire glass?
YES, a burner should NEVER be used unless it is completely covered. A 1/4" diameter media base is strongly recommended to cover the burner before applying the final topping. The media should cover the burner by about 1/2" to 1" before the final topping is added. Our small lava rock works best. Operating a burner without proper coverage can cause warpage and possible permanent damage to the burner and burner pan. This will also void the warranty on the product.
