My stamped/stained concrete pool deck is being poured in a week and I live in a windy area in Middle TN. After reading some horror stories about umbrellas being blown into the pool and damaging vinyl liners I am thinking about installing umbrella anchors into my pool deck, seems like a good solution. I read about some folks using PVC pipe, but I am concerned the wind would lift the umbrella out.
Anyone have recommendations on the best anchors? I found this gadget but it is $140.
Thanks in advance!
