Does your patio umbrella constantly blow over? My deck out back gets mostly all sun since we cut our tree down. We bought a nice set a few years back and the umbrella kept blowing over. Then one day it took the table with it and the glass went into a million pieces. So we bought a cheap plastic table but now the umbrella took that down too. We are using a base that fills with water which came with the umbrella. It seems pretty heavy. Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions? I find I use my deck more with some covering out there although it's been too hot to go out the last few days.
