Already on it’s way? Have a look at our answers to Christow customer FAQ’s below to make sure you get the best use out of your new parasol.


 What parasol base should I use?

If you will be using your parasol in the centre of a table, you can use a parasol base of 15kg or less. If your parasol is free standing, you will need a heavier base for extra strength. We suggest anything which is 20kg or higher.


 Can I leave my parasol up over night? 

Whenever possible we highly recommend storing your parasol in a dry, safe environment. This will help prolong the life of your parasol.

However, during the summer, we suggest using a parasol cover to protect it when not in use. A cover will provide enough protection to the canopy during warm, dry months.


How do I prevent the canopy from fading?

If you follow the above instructions on caring for you parasol when not in use, you will give the parasol the best protection from fading. During spells of very good weather we recommend using a UV protection fabric spray to maintain the UV protection and prevent fading when exposed to sun for long periods of time.


How should I clean my parasol?

Our advice is to clean your parasol annually before putting it away for the winter. That way when the first burst of sunshine appears next year, you’ll be ready to enjoy the outdoors under a clean parasol.

Just follow these simple steps for a sparkling parasol:

  1. Remove dirt and dust using a household vacuum cleaner.
  2. Using a bucket of warm soapy water and a soft brush work the soap water into the parasol canopy. Do not use solvent-based cleaners or detergents as they could bleach or damage the parasol.
  3. Let the parasol soak for 20 minutes.
  4. Using a hose rinse away the soapy water.
  5. Let the parasol dry in the sunshine. Make sure it is 100% dry before folding up and packing away.


What if I have a problem?

If you run into any issues with your parasol within the first year of using the product, simply contact us and we will be happy to replace it.

Follow all these steps to make sure your fantastic parasol that will remain functional years to come.
