2.The color difference is literally unavoidable due to different product photography lightingand rendering technology. Even the screen resolution and the color depth of your screen will affect how you see the color of the pictures.
We have tried our best to reduce color differences between displayed images and real umbrellas. But please take the images for reference only.
The pantone color codes are available on the fabric tab of each Bluu patio umbrella page for reference.

The diameter of Bluu Market Umbrella center pole is 1.5 inches.
How much wind can a Bluu patio umbrella take?
Bluu patio umbrellas are able to withstand strong winds of level 8 with our bases fulfilled according to lab data. However, we do recommend you close the umbrella when the wind speed reaches 10.8~18.5m/sina real world, because the real-world environment is more complicated than in a lab.
Can I put the umbrella in the salt water pool?
Unfortunately, we do not recommend this. Although all of Bluu patio umbrella frames are aluminum with powder-coated, which will hold up well outdoors for a long run without rusting, the screws, however, are made of iron and there is a riskof rusting and corrosion in salt water.
What are the differences between Maple Pro Market Umbrella styles with different tiers?
In addition to aesthetics, there will be more vent within more tiers of the umbrella canopy so that the stability of the umbrella will be better.

Bluu patio umbrellas require little or no maintenance under normal operating conditions. However, to keep it looking its best, you should clean it from time to time. We recommend spot cleaning your canopies with mild soap or detergent and a soft bristle brush, then allowing them to fully air dry.We recommend closing the canopy when not in use to prevent damage due to adverse weather.
About Umbrella Base
Does this umbrella come with a weighted base?
Compatible weighted bases are sold separately. Weighted bases are necessary to provide stability and safety. We recommend purchasing a set of umbrella and base, and in this way you'll get a higher discount.
How should I choose a good base?
Market Umbrella is compatible with the HDPE Weight Base and Iron Base.
1. Iron Base is recommended for use with patio umbrella tables to maximize the space under the table.
2. The HDPE Weight Baseprovides enough weight at all times and is more stable than Iron Base. We recommend this base in windy areas.
The Cantilever Umbrella is compatible with the Medium Base, the Large Base, and the Mobile Base.
1. Medium Base can only be used with the Sequoia Pro Cantilever Umbrella, which provides the main downforce while meets the need of movement.
2. Large Base can be used with all Bluu Cantilever umbrellas to provide maximum weight. A heavier weight is better for steadying a larger umbrella in windy conditions.
3. The Mobile Base provides almost as much weight as the Large Base while it features a one-handed movement system that allows you to easily move your patio umbrella anywhere.
The Banyan Offset Hanging Umbrella matches theCompact Base, which provides sufficient downforce while saving vertical space.
Can I use water or water and sand and leave the base out in the winter with sub -freezing temps?
If you purchase the plastic base, it is recommended to empty the water or water & sand before winter.
You can also add antifreeze to the water inside the base to prevent the water from freezing.
What is the percentage of sand and water used to fill the base?
First, you should fill the base with sand, which obviously has a higher density than water, until the base is almost fulfilled. Then we add as much water as possible to fill the tiny gaps between sand grains.
What is the weight limit on the bench portion of the 100 gallon and 120 gallon deck box?
600lbs for 100 gallon deck box and 660lbs for 120 gallon deck box.
