It a great system with two weaknesses. First, it takes forever to put the sand into the base. They have a 1 inch hole but they could have easily have built the base with a 2-3 inch hole. If the sand is damp at all (manufactures often wash play sand then bag it before it is completely dry), it sticks together and won't go in the base. Second, they should have built a handle into the end of the base opposite the wheels. It would be so much easier to have something to grab on to when the unit is next to the pool and you want to move it. Still, I'd buy the same unit again.
The goal is nice, works good, but Lifetime shipped me the wrong pole. After trying to figure it out for an hour, I finally called their hot-line and was told I was shipped the incorrect pole. They did expedite the shipment of the correct pole, but the lady on the phone was rude and impolite telling me to be sure to count the other parts, because they wouldn't expedite any more!!
I have found this to be a great product. the description is accurate. We use it at school, not for the swimming pool, but for kids in the special ed, who are unable to play with a regular hoop.. wheel chair basketball, for example. easy to assemble, the only down side was filling the base with sand... takes too long (had to use sand, as it is being used indoors), maybe they could make bigger holes, like 10", just use a bigger plug. easy to move.
Good product, looks great, can't wait to try it in the pools this summer.
Great product !! Kids love it !
This poolside basketball net is a perfect addition to our pool. It was a little tricky to assemble (took about an hour), but it is sturdy and well made. The blue and white colors blend in nicely to the pool area as well.
So far my son loves it and plays with it every day
Love this! Yes it was on the harder side to put together but its perfrct for our pool and our teenagers love it! Filled it with water indstad of sand. Back board is large, and it adjust pretty easy for our teenagers to do.
Would definetly recomnend this.
Nice product wasn't to terrible to put together. You will need an additional 2 people to mount the board and rim to the pole. I wish the holes in the base were bigger, would make adding sand to the base much easier. Kids love it. Great addition pool side.
Very impressed with quality of this item. quick assembly and enjoyed it same day it was received. I looked at all the other products that are available and this was
the perfect choice. Very happy with this purchase.
Instructions were good easy to read pictures. I have never seen this type of backboard so i hope it last. Powdercoat looks good, we live in AZ hope it last in the sun. Over all very pleased looks solid.
Overall I'm happy with the purchase. The height is just right. The appearance is nice and I noticed some improvements over the earlier model that I had that will limit the pooling of water and hopefully extend the life of the metal parts. The description led me to believe the acrylic backboard was much thicker than it actually is. It's still functional but based on the description I spent the extra money to order the acrylic backboard over the plastic one and was disappointed that it was not what I expected. It looks nicer but is not functionally better than the plastic backboard.
Purchased the hoop for my in-ground pool. Worked out perfectly, good appeal and glad that it can be moved if necessary. Just wish the rim had springs for dunking. Instructions are only pictures no descriptions. Play close attention.
Haven't had this long enough to comment on its durability but it seems well constructed. The kids are using a soccer ball as opposed to a heavier basketball just because it's easier to throw around if they're treading water. My main complaint is either the assembly instructions are horrible or I'm a complete idiot (or both). Companies as large as this should offer a video on their website to compliment the written instructions because these were very vague. In hindsight I could probably assemble a second one in 45 minutes this one took 3 hours. A flexible rim would also have made this product better for those that have kids tall enough to be dunking.
The hoop exceeded my expectations. We've only had it a week, but the kids love it. Dinged it a star because the directions were a bit cryptic in spots causing us to have to disassemble and reassemble a couple times, but it's all good. Backboard is decent, but does move around some when using a full size basketball.
Easy to put together. Very sturdy. Looks great! We had to tighten the screws on the rim after just a week, we used it alot. Its a great hoop.
Product was sturdy but the inside of the pole support is already rusting after only 2 weeks of use. Cant imagine it is going to last very long and rust stains are showing up from it on my pool deck.
We have used it quite a lot, it would be nice if they made it easier to adjust the height.
Instructions to put it together were terrible.
