Replacement poles for outdoor umbrellas can be purchased at specialty umbrella stores or stores that sell patio furniture and equipment. Alternatively, owners can request replacement parts from the manufacturer, or they can replace the entire umbrella.
Replacing an outdoor umbrella's pole can be difficult because umbrella parts are not interchangeable between brands. In addition, poles are often included with an entire umbrella assembly rather than being sold separately. When purchasing a new pole, buyers should look for a pole long enough to hold the umbrella's canopy above their heads while standing. Replacement poles must also be able to withstand wind and other weather hazards.
