The Sun Garden “Original Easy Sun Parasol only works in a Sun Garden base. It will not work in another base plus it voids all warranties if the umbrella is use in a non-Sun Garden base.
Since the Sun Garden umbrella is a Cantilever or Side Mount umbrella it is very important the base be properly filled with 5 bags of pea gravel or sand. This is the approximately 250lbs. You can fit an extra half a bag. Plus, in warm climates you can add water for additional weight. Water Only will NOT work. The base only holds 5 gallons of water which is about 55lbs. The umbrella will fall over.
