Why subjunctive here?

This was the question: How would you say "When I put the parasol on the beach it always blows away."?

If this is something that always happens, why was it wrong to use the indicative? I don't see the future here.

Hola Francesca

The correct answer in the system for this is using the indicative:

Cuando pongo la sombrilla en la playa siempre se vuela.

The present subjunctive would be "ponga".
