The Aluminum Patio Umbrella from Pure Garden gives you flexible control over the sun's harmful rays for your patio, deck, pool or any other outdoor gathering space. This beautiful market umbrella features steel-reinforced ribs, a sturdy aluminum pole and a heavy-duty fabric canopy that resists mold and mildew. Add to an anchored base to use as a free-standing umbrella, or easily attach it to an umbrella-compatible table for a ready-made entertaining space. And thanks to the convenient auto-tilt feature and simple crank lift, staying comfortable in the shade from sunrise to sunset has never been easier.
So far so good. Like the shade it provides. Only thing is I wouldn't say it's a true red. I have a red grill and and red flowers so I thought I would get a red umbrella to tie in, it's more of a deeper red, not a Christmas or fire engine red.
Nice quality umbrella for low cost. We wanted something to finish out the summer season with that was affordable and would hold up until next season when we replace existing patio furniture. This looks like it could last a couple more summers.
First, there is not tilt option.
Second, it barely lasted one summer. The wind bent the thin hollow aluminum right in half while it was closed. I tried to bend it back, it broke. I tried to fill the whole post with a wooden dowel to reinforce it, but that resulted in a totally insecure situation. Waste of money. Nothing out there seems to work with it to replace the stand.
