We are redoing the decking of our already existing pool. They will be pouring the concrete soon and I would like to install 2 inground umbrella holders. Unfortunately where I live I cannot find anyone who sells them, nor do I have time to order them and have them shipped to me. I considered using some PVC and various fittings to construct one. I was hoping to get some feedback from TFP from anyone who has experience with this.
What is a good depth to go? I have one offset umberella and a regular centered umberealla. Both are pretty standard sizes. Would it work to just put some PVC into the ground and affix a coupling to the top of the pvc and then us an end cap that is removable for when we do not have umbrellas set up?
Our main concern is we would like the capped "hole" to be as flush with the concrete deck as possible to avoid any tripping or eyesores.
I appreciate any adivice you can give me!!
