In Pool Umbrella provides some shaded relief

inpool-umbrellaSummer is beckoning, and this would mean breaking out the suntan lotion as well as the beach towels. After all, this is the moment that you have been waiting for all this while – to be able to show off your bronzed body after spending the winter and spring months in the gym. Having said that, surely you would be attending a few pool parties this year, or perhaps even hosting your very own. If you fall in the latter category, how about investing in the $249.99 In Pool Umbrella?

This is one in-pool umbrella that delivers a 7′-diameter canopy to shade bathers, where it will float about freely in water with a depth of 2′ or greater. The umbrella will make use of a rust-proof aluminum pole alongside an affixed 6-lb. counterweight located at its bottom so that it can remain in position in breezes or waves, even should it venture outside of its comfort zone that is beyond the pool – such as the lake, pond, or even ocean. It can support up to 38 lbs. and delivers optimal buoyancy thanks to a foam-filled 18″-diam. buoy that is attached to the pole which rests atop the water and has five cupholders to boot. The canopy itself is made from durable polyester that has been treated to resist damaging UV energy which keeps its pristine color intact and unsullied.
