This market patio parasol has an alluring canopy that comes in three colors. It is made with 100% polyester fabric, which Blissun says offers UV protection, is water-proof, and fade resistant.
However, you deserve to know that the canopy fades quickly and isn’t 100% water-proof, with a few people complaining about this issue. Also, perhaps Blissun should consider going for a heavier fabric that is slightly thicker or heavier.
Finally, the canopy fades a little too quickly when compared to the solution-dyed polyester counterparts.
The umbrella has a rust-free powder-coated aluminum frame (ribs and pole), making it an excellent choice for rust-prone areas, i.e., places with high temperatures and humidity, such as coastal regions. Also, aluminum is light-weight when compared to steel.
However, it is not so strong and tends to warp, ding, or break easily. Therefore, always close this when it is windy, during storms, or not using it. Doing so will help increase its lifespan.
Finally, the 1.5-inch aluminum pole looks flimsy, and breakages are commonly reported issues with this umbrella. A little thicker or a commercial-grade would do better.
It comes with a push-button tilt, a crank system (for opening and closing), and an air vent to allow for air escape when windy and to vent hot air.
One thing it lacks is a strap to tie it firmly when not in use. Unless you have an umbrella cover, you may need to get something for securing it.
This Blissun 9′ Patio Umbrella Aluminum Manual Push Button Tilt and Crank Garden Parasol is an affordable patio brand. It is competitively priced and competes with brands of the same caliber.
This patio umbrella has great colors and patterns that will transform your patio, garden, lawn, deck, balcony, or wherever you will use it.
It is affordable (goes for below $43), well-made, and a fantastic buy for people who are unwilling to spend several hundreds of dollars for a patio umbrella. It will do the job. However, don’t expect it to last like those high-end Sunbrella brands.
