Regarding the product, there is poor quality control from the manufacturer. In addition, expect to be pandered to or completely ignored by Lava Heat "Customer Service". (I place this in quotation marks because I was never really treated as a customer and never really received any service.)
On the first unit a bolt was missing on the gas unit housing and a similar bolt was not tightened causing the gas unit to hang from just 2 bolts. Their documentation says to not contact the retailer, but contact Lava Heat directly for this type of issue.
On the second unit, the pilot light will not stay lit. The igniter works, the pilot lights; however, the pilot light will not stay lit after depressing the gauge for 10 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute or 3 minutes.
I contacted Lava Heat with my issues on Thursday, March 10. After going through his troubleshooting script, the customer service representative wanted to escalate my call to the customer service manager. However, she was not in that day. I left my name and phone number and requested a call back.
On the afternoon of Monday, March 14, I once again contacted Lava Heat customer service. I once again had to explain my issue to the same rep that took my call on Friday. He, once again, wanted to escalate my call. This time, however, the customer service manager was in conferences and apparently was not replying to customer service issues at all during the conference.
On the afternoon of Wednesday, March 16, I once again contacted Lava Heat customer service. I once again had to explain my issue to the same rep that took my previous 2 calls. After placing me on hold, he told me that I should just return the unit to Amazon. And, if I was interested, just purchase another unit to replace it.
So, I will return it. But, I will find a different manufacturer. They may be beautiful heaters, but if the manufacturer is not willing to stand behind their product, why should I?
Lava Heat Italia Lava Mini Tabletop Patio Light Propane, 11,000 BTU
This table-top version of the Lava Heat Italia patio heater stands 3 ft. tall, and has all the great standard features of full-sized Lava Heat Italia units, emitting a warm, radiant glow that illuminates any outdoor setting.
They are well made and really add a nice touch to an outdoor setting. While the propane tanks are readily available for about two dollars each, you can buy an adapter to refill them from your standard 20lb bbq tank. Not sure if it's worth the hassle though.
All in all a good buy and much better than the cheaper versions sold at various big box stores. If you want heat though, you should invest in the big brother, top of the line 2G model and use a couple of these tabletop units for ambient light and effect. You won't be disappointed.
First two I ordered as Heritage bronze for about $20 more, yet they were the exact same color as the third one (mocha pebble bronze) which was priced at $199 and $7 s/h. First two claimed to be 27,000 BTU's, third was 15,000 BTU's.
There is a lot of unexplainable differences in colors, prices, costs, etc. I do NOT recommend.
