Product Description

Amazon.com

Shoot some hoops from your favorite inner tube with the 1306 poolside basketball system from Lifetime. This very portable basketball system is made with a Pro Court 26-Gallon polyethylene base that can be filled with either sand or water. The attached wheels make it easy to roll wherever you want it to go. It has a two-piece, 3-inch telescoping pole construction with a blue hammer tone finish that adjusts to six variable settings from 4-1/2 to 7 feet in height. The 44-inch Fusion backboard has a molded high-density polyethylene frame and an acrylic shot area with a white granite finish and special UV protected graphics. The 5/8-inch blue hammer tone Classic rim features a solid steel ring with 1/2-inch brace supports, an all-weather nylon net and welded steel net hooks that are virtually unbreakable. So dive in and rack up some points this summer, from the comfort of your inflatable seahorse.

Portable basketball systems depend on a base filled with sand or water for stability. Although it will take up more space than an in-ground system, the portable base rolls on wheels, allowing players to position the basketball system in the desired location (and also allowing storage in a garage). Simply assemble, fill the base and play today. There is no fussing with concrete.

Amazon.com Basketball System Buying Guide
With the high-quality construction of many portable basketball systems, turning your driveway into a basketball court can be as simple as hooking up your garden hose. But while a portable system may ultimately be your best choice, there are reasons you may want to consider an in-ground or wall-mount system before you decide.

In-Ground Systems
In-ground systems are permanently cemented into the ground--either via a bolt mounting kit or directly into the ground--and are generally more rigid and take up less space than portables. In-ground systems often require that you hire a professional to complete the task, but when the cement dries you'll have a hoop that can take punishing dunks with ease.

Many in-ground systems are height-adjustable, include removable post features that let you take the system down for off-season storage, and feature heavy-duty break-away rims. You'll also want to research the adjustable mechanisms on the systems, as there are several types to choose from. Some feature a counter-balance spring that lets you perform easy, one-hand adjustments while others may feature a sturdy, pneumatic system.

Wall-Mount Systems
Wall-mount systems can be mounted to the side of a house, a tall retaining wall, or a garage. Generally sturdier than portables, wall-mounts have the added advantage of optimizing your existing ground space for the court, since you won't take any space up with the base or pole. Not all systems include the necessary hardware, so make certain you add a mounting kit to your list.

Portable Systems
Portable systems require minimal installation and offer ultimate convenience. These systems generally feature a base that can be filled with sand or water to stabilize them and include wheels for portability. Although they are not as sturdy as in-ground or wall-mounted hoops, portables are simple to set up and can often be folded for convenient storage.

Backboard Considerations
Regardless of which system you choose, you'll want to brush up on Backboards 101. Most residential systems feature backboards made of acrylic, fiberglass, graphite, or various other composite materials. While clear acrylic gives the professional look and feel of glass, it is not as rigid as fiberglass or graphite. Some systems may offer steel or aluminum backboards, which are virtually vandal resistant, but don't offer the true rebounding action.

The regulation size of an NBA backboard is 72 inches wide and 42 inches high. Most portable hoops are 42 or 44 inches wide and 36 inches tall. In-ground systems tend to be a bit larger, with 54-inch and 60-inch widths being the most popular. While rectangular shaped backboards provide more bank shot opportunities, they are generally more expensive than the streamlined fan-shaped board.

First, let me start with the positives. This is a great product out of the box. The plastic base, when filled with water, holds the pole and backboard securely. Metal hardware is heavy-weight and powder-coated an attractive blue color. Two screws / bolts allow you to adjust the angle of the pole (easy) as well as the height of the backboard and rim (moderately difficult). The backboard is attractive and substantial and the rim and net are high-end. This is the best basketball system I have found for a pool in that it feels like you are shooting hoops on a real backboard and not some cheap toy. It is not EXACTLY the same as shooting on an in-ground system, in that the pole wiggles a little and the backboard gives a little, but it is close enough considering you are in a pool :)

The big downside for this product is rust. I have owned this for three years and it is starting to degrade - large flakes of rust are falling into the pool and it appears that this will be its last year. It is rusting at the bottom of the pole, where the angle brackets meet the pole - even the rim is rusting (and discoloring the net). I live in Southern California where it never rains, so the rust issue is surprising. For a heavy steel pipe to rust completely through in a few years is unusual - I have steel all around the outside of our house that does much better (steel fencing, steel gates, etc). I hope they either improve the metal they use, or figure out some other solution.

UPDATE: This is such a good product that I threw out my old one (it rusted) and bought a new one. Perhaps it is wishful thinking on my part, but after one year with the new product, there is only the tiniest sign of rust on any parts. At the end of the summer I will take the unit down, clean it, and seal any rusting areas with clear epoxy. Just be aware that this maintenance is part of owning this basketball system.

Very sturdy assembly and full size hoop. So far its been a lot of fun. I only wish they provided a drain plug for the base. You can still drain by removing the two top filler caps and tipping it to the side though.

Works great. I would order it again. I will also be able to use it as a basketball goal for my kids during the pool off-season. It will take 2 people to put together.

We bought this basketball goal for our pool and have been very happy with it. Our son uses it constantly and it is holding up great. It was what we were expecting and we would recommend this purchase.

This is a great pool basketball hoop. Very heavy duty to support the big jams and it looks good.

I don't typically write reviews - in fact this is probably my first. However, I wanted to help people out who might be researching this product for their pool. I should state up front that we have a Salt Pool (SWG) with a regular salt level of ~3500 ppm - this potentially contributed to the failure of this product as compared to an owner with a non-salt pool.

Aside from the problems, the hoop is tons of fun. It is a great height, has good stability, and added a ton of enjoyment to our pool environment. Unfortunately, after only 3 days of ownership, the rim started rusting in multiple places. Upon further inspection, I noticed rust marks in other areas also --- inside the main pole (this part is not powder coated as well as the exterior of the pole), and the 2 support beams were also exhibiting rust marks. Again -- this happened after ONLY 3 days of use.

Before purchasing this particular model, I had read other reports of rust over time -- but based on these reviews I was hoping to get ~ 2 years of use out of this product before it would need to be replaced. I was willing to accept this fact given the relatively low price of the unit. Additionally, I took extra care to hose off the unit with hose water at the end of each day it was used in an attempt to extend the life of the unit - obviously, this did not help.

I should add that Amazon was amazing to deal with throughout the return process (they always have been in my experience.) The unit was sent back today for a refund --- now I just need to find a new hoop...

This is a FANTASTIC pool side basketball goal. The fun rating for the family (including two 10-year-old boys and mom and dad) is a 10 out of 10. Well worth the money. Nice indention in base to store a basketball. Only negatives: it has indeed slightly rusted fairly quickly (around hoop ring and bolts) and it is a rather cumbersome process to put together. I would GLADLY pay $50-$100 more for this same goal with stainless steel components that do not rust.

Bought this to replace an in ground basketball goal that had rusted. Looked at other systems but I liked the portability and sturdiness of this goal. It's higher above the pool than other goals we've had but it makes it more of a challenge. For the smaller kids, I bought a smaller ball. I'd recommend this.
