I love this umbrella. I also bought the BLUU 4 pc 230 lbs Water & Sand Weighted Base... so it won't tip over when it's windy. I am temporarily using it over my pond until we get some trees planted to shade the pond on sunny days.
I LOVE the fact the base turns which was super helpful in the limited space I have on one side of my pond. I also think the tilting positions is great it is super easy to maneuver. I have four other outdoor umbrellas and this is my favorite. The features alone make it worth every penny, and it is sturdy and looks like the material will last a white.
I highly recommend this umbrella. I have had it for about a week and a half and had the weighted base for almost a week. The weighted base is great. I filled mine with sand, but if needed I will add water to make them a little heaver. I recommend the base if you aren't going to put something in the legs of the unbrella stand to hold it to the ground. I bought another companies base, but it didn't work well for this umbrella for what I needed.
In the video you can see it was windy and the base doesn't move at all. I filled the base with sand.
This umbrella was easy to put together. Unfortunately, it arrived broken. The outside umbrella cap came out of the box completely removed from the umbrella. We superglued it, but it seems unlikely to stay. It also has holes in the canopy. Because we waited for a nice day to put it together, we are outside the return window, which is less than a month!
Update: Bluu contacted us via email, apologized that the product had broken during transit, and, despite being outside the return window, understood our dilemma and offered to replace the umbrella or to refund our purchase entirely. Their customer service was responsive, professional, and appreciated.
