Chimney Sweep Information
Glassel is a clean burning fireplace and fire pit media. Traditionally
natural wood burning fireplaces emit an excessive amount of soot from
the burning process. Even though fake wood logs are commonly sold as clean
burning, the process of having the burner spaced underneath the random
log shapes causes the flame to whip around the logs creating a situation
where the fake gas logs will always turn black over time and create soot
in the chimney. Aquatic Glassel is the only product that provides a clean
burn in fireplaces and fire pits because the fire is unobstructed and
always above the surface of the glass.
We have heard back from a few people who comment that, “My glass is turning black.” The glass will not turn black with natural gas or a properly adjusted propane setup. The case always turns out to be that soot from burning wood and or fake logs over the years has created a soot build up in the chimney that falls when the fireplace is used, on windy days etc… We always recommend that the chimney be swept before any installation of our glass in any fireplace unless the home is brand new. Even after the chimney has been swept we have seen residual soot fall on top of the glass in some fireplaces. This scenario can be partially avoided by asking your chimney sweep to do an extra thorough job. The purpose for sweeping a chimney is to reduce the fire hazard of excessive carbon buildup and or chimney blockage/restriction. Sweeping the chimney will eliminate this hazard but may not remove all residual soot particles during the process.

What is Aquatic Glassel you might ask. Aquatic Glassel is an alternative to Gas Logs, Wood or Lava Rock in Fireplaces and Fire Pits of course. Aquatic Glassel consists of a heat treated tempered glass product that when broken incurs a phenomenon called dicing. Each of the pieces, uniform in size relative to the original plate thickness are then polished to remove the remaining sharp edges for safe handling. Aquatic Glassel is a direct replacement for gas logs in most fireplaces as well as an elegant choice to be used in Fire Pits as an alternative to the traditional lava rock. Aquatic Glassel will never melt, burn or discolor when used in a fireplace or fire pit, so the Beautiful Colors will always look as vibrant as the day they were installed!
