Frequently Asked Questions
Will the LumaBase burn?
No! There is an additive to the plastic to make it non-flammable. However, it will melt in direct flame.
Can I fill the LumaBase with sand?
Sure! Filling the LumaBase with sand provides the necessary weight and can remain in the base for use year after year.
Are the LumaSleeves flammable?
As they are made of cardboard and treated to be flame resistant, in a direct flame they can burn.
Will the LumaBase break if the water inside freezes?
The LumaBase is made of the same material as a plastic milk carton. Freezing may bulge the LumaBase, but should not effect the use.
How close should I place the Luminaria's to one another?
It can vary. We suggest using the lines on sidewalks as a guide, 1 - 2 feet along your walkway, and 4 - 5 feet around you pool.
Can I store the used LumaBase with water inside?
Yes! We suggest that you add a drop of dish detergent to each to avoid water discoloration.
How long will the candles burn?
The tea light candles burn approximately 4 hours and 7 hours. Burn time varies depending on the outside temperatures. Colder weather keeps the wax cooler and burns slower.
Are the bags flammable?
Yes! They are made of paper. Our "Flame Resistant" Bags will extinguish the flame, but can burn under direct flame.
Can I use other candles?
Yes! The LumaBase is designed to accept three different size candles.
Can I use votive candles in the LumaBase?
No! Avoid soft, low temperature burning waxed candles. The wax melts very quickly and runs off before burning.
