Our History

Sun Away Outdoor Shades is the best product on the market to protect your outdoor assets from costly sun damage. Tony Lee, owner/operator of Sunaway, has worked in the pool service industry for many years and was constantly replacing damaged pool equipment from sun exposure and extreme AZ heat. Looking for a functional, attractive and effective product for his client’s pool equipment, Tony set out on a two year journey researching and developing his patent pending custom shade structure for pool equipment. 


Tony presented the shades for the first time at the Desert Pool and Spa Show in Phoenix and because of high demand, immediately made the product available to the general public and the rest is history.


Sunaway Shades is the number one pool equipment shade company in Arizona for a reason. Each model is CUSTOM designed and built to fit your equipment. Our shade material blocks up to 85% of UV rays and has shown to decrease the temperatures up to 50 degrees. It is our hope that you call on us to schedule a free estimate by simply calling our office at 602.435.1773.

We did have to wait but was told when we would be able to order. It was right in line with time estimated. At first we did not care for the design and the owner recreated and we are very happy!

Top to bottom-great response along with great follow-up to tweak the product install. Sunaway also replaced the fabric after my landscaper accidentally burnt holes through it with his gas blower-yikes!. Sunaway did not charge us to do that. We are covering a large pool/spa equipment area and its been exactly what we needed. It replaced many make-shift solutions I, as the homeowner, tried to come up with myself. My first reaction was the expense but, as time has passed ( 2 + years), I see its worth....
