I bought this umbrella because the stainless steel one that preceded it got rust in my brand new pool. After a lot of research I found that the only material that won’t rust in a salt water pool is fiberglass. There was only one other company that sells fiberglass poles, but they didn’t have an online order system, and they were closed for the weekend.
This company was very responsive, delivered when they said they would, didn’t charge me until they were ready to deliver, and just all around good experience.
I took away one star rather unfairly. I should have ordered a pole that has a crank (honestly don’t know if they have one) and I wish I had ordered 9 feet instead of 7.5.
But I did take the pole out of the pool today and was happy to see no rust.
I love the yellow- it’s bright and beautiful.
And I like the style as well.
Just really want a crank.
