Bitchen little stainless collars to drop umbrellas into around the pool. The guy that built the house told me he machined them himself out of 304 stainless.. Well he made them 1.250 for some reason and it's hard to find a cheap umbrellas with that pole size as they are all 1.500 or bigger. So tonight we opened up the hole to 1.525.. Also discovered thy aren't stainless.. 7075 aluminum if I had to guess.

Pics of umbrellas installed coming tomorrow afternoon.

Lead time 4 beers

For Some of the collars? Stainless would be pricey as hell.. 7075 aluminum wouldn't be that bad though.
I'll call you on this...

I found we had an unbrella that actually fit in in the holes the pool fence left perfectly!

Where did you get the umbrellas you have there? They look a lot nicer than mine.

Dave, thanks for the awesome idea. I never would have thought of it!

We found and umbrella and matching chairs at Costo that fit right in the old pool fence holes. My wife bought everything they had, so we should have this stuff in stock for years!

Thank you. We put a lot of thought into it when we re-did the pool. That spa and wall were not there when we bought the house. The red brick is kinna hot in the summer though, thats the only drawback to it. Id use a lighter color of bullnose next time.
