Q: Does this umbrella come with a weighted base?

A: Compatible weighted bases are sold separately. Weighted bases are necessary to provide stability and safety.  Receive a discount when you buy a base together with an umbrella.

Q: How should I choose a good base? How much do your bases cost?

A: BLUU bases sell for $69.99-$209.99 and depend on the size of your umbrella, whether it’s a market or cantilever umbrella, and the material you choose for the base. Some models are made of iron which are ready to use out of the box, while others are made from durable and lightweight plastic, which can then be self-filled with water or sand. All our bases are color-matched with the color of our umbrellas. Search our Accessories page to find the base that is compatible with your umbrella model.

Q: Can I replace the Umbrella canopy?

A: Yes, you can easily replace the canopy if needed. Unlike many other brands, BLUU canopies are made with superior materials like Olefin and Sunbrella fabrics that are fade-resistant and are backed with long-term warranties.

Q: Do your umbrellas tilt?

A: Yes, all of our umbrellas feature tilting systems. For our market umbrellas, a push-button system is easy to use and offers 3 angles for tilt. Our cantilever umbrellas offer either a 5-tilt system or an infinite-tilt crank system, depending on the model.

Q: How wide are the Market Umbrella center poles?

A: The diameter for our Market Umbrella center pole is 1.5 inches.

Q: Are your umbrellas waterproof?

A: All of our umbrellas have a water-resistant coating, but since our products are designed for providing shade, we recommend your umbrella be closed and stored during adverse weather to prevent the umbrella from sustaining damage.

Q: What maintenance does my umbrella require?

A: Our umbrellas require little or no maintenance under normal operating conditions. However, in order to keep it looking its best, you should clean it from time to time. We recommend closing the canopy when not in use to prevent damage due to adverse weather.

Q: How do I clean my umbrella canopy?

A: We recommend spot cleaning your canopies with mild soap or detergent and a soft bristle brush, then allowing to fully air dry.

Q: How should I store my umbrella?

A: We recommend keeping the original box so that you can store the umbrella away during severe weather or during the off-season. If the canopy has been cleaned or otherwise exposed to moisture, make sure it dries completely before storing to prevent mildew.
