A better solution might be something like hammock tree straps. You could use those to attach to the tree, and then attach the shade sail to those.

30 mph winds should be ok for a shade sail, assuming it’s horizontal or near horizontal in configuration.

Comment on Sun Shade Sail Installation Ideas: 9 DIY Tips to Make Your Shade Sail Soar! by KB https://www.outsidemodern.com/sun-shade-sail-installation-ideas/#comment-9884 Tue, 04 Jun 2019 16:53:23 +0000 https://www.outsidemodern.com/?p=234#comment-9884 Thanks for the great information! You mentioned the sail can be attached to a tree but didn’t really say how to do that. We have a medium sized tree near our patio. Would that be a viable mounting option? If so, how? Also, we get gusts 30mph+ regularly. How wind resistant is a sail? Much appreciated!

If you use iOS, you should check out the Zilker system. It really is a better design than the Melnor, but it’s iOS-only for the moment.

Good luck!

The Raincloud is terribly unreliable, halting watering schedules with no notice at all – I lost quite a few plants because they dried up and died.

Good luck getting the base unit connected to your Wi-Fi network. It’s a daunting task with no clear directions or help (and I work in IT!). Melnor customer service is of no help at all; they just follow a script and if they don’t understand the problem you’re out of luck. Over the past year I needed to reconfigure the base unit three times and on the third go-round it never successfully connected so I threw the Raincloud in the trash.

Don’t make the same mistake and waste $100. Buy a manual timer; at least they’re reliable.

I’m afraid I don’t know where you’ll be able to find a replacement. You may be able to reach out to your original supplier, that’s probably your best bet. Good luck!

A Leap Above the Pack! by Admin https://www.outsidemodern.com/keter-fusion-shed-review/#comment-9602 Mon, 08 Apr 2019 21:15:35 +0000 https://www.outsidemodern.com/?p=7868#comment-9602 If you order from Amazon, it usually takes at least a week to get delivered. The delivery company calls you once it’s ordered, and you schedule a date for delivery. You have to be there to sign for it, it’s not like a regular Amazon Prime delivery. Good luck building your base, and assembling your shed!

Comment on Keter Fusion Shed Review. A Leap Above the Pack! by Lorna Dyer https://www.outsidemodern.com/keter-fusion-shed-review/#comment-9507 Fri, 29 Mar 2019 16:58:16 +0000 https://www.outsidemodern.com/?p=7868#comment-9507 I have a question. We are building a platform for this shed now. I will order it
when that is finished. How long does it take to have this delivered? I don’t want
to get it too early so it has to be stored…..

Thanks.

Perhaps it is overly sensitive and is triggering too quickly. You may be able to reach out to e-Joy and ask for a replacement or see if there are any options for adjusting the sensitivity.

You may be able to reach out to the original manufacturer and see if you can get a replacement through them, but finding an off-the-shelf replacement will be quite difficult. I can’t think of anyplace where I’ve seen 7-rib umbrella canvases. Good luck!
