Now that I have had the decking done, I have been able to install the long awaited Parasol. The weights arrived on time from ordering and now are installed. Looks great setup. Just waiting for some warm days to use it all.
Great item. filled with water DAMN heavy! *update* Great item ... had a few windy days and the weights held their own.... Fantastic item.
Quite large takes up space on patio. Saying that it does the job nicely and holds up in strong breeze.
Filled with Water rather than sand, they'll empty easier for storage.
Bought Parasol to shade a corner sofa, so limited where to position base, reason for 4 stars. It wouldn't be an issue with a 2-3 or 4 piece patio set.
What I like about these parasol weights is that you can empty them for easy removal/change of location without straining yourself.
When empty they are quite light. When a new position for the parasol is selected the parasol base is put down and then the weights can be filled with sand or water. This avoids carrying heavy weights across the garden. In terms of Health ans Safety - it's a winner. So far with fairly medium winds blowing, the parasol has been firm and stable.
