The overall construction of the item is good upon first impressions. I have had the BAsketball set for a few years now and it is garaged when not in use in the Winter. The metal pole and actual steel basketball hoop are rusting horribly. You have to be careful for staining on pool deck because of the large abmounts of dripping rust. The powdercoating finish not a lifetime poroduct. This is occuring in a regular pool and not caused by a salt based pool.

I would not purchase this product again for the money and would look for something else.

My kids had great fun with this hoop and it was well used. That said...don't expect it to last more than a season or two...especially if you have a salt water pool. After one seasons the pole has collapsed because it is completely rusted out. The hoop is rusted too. Wonder why they don't use stainless hardware and charge a few extra bucks

Nice hoop for a very reasonable price. Very sturdy and backboard/rim feel pretty solid. Lower height option would be nice, but this one looks and feels better than the others available imo.

Based on other reviews having problems with rust, I sprayed all metal parts with several coats of clear rustolium spray paint after assembly. No issues thus far but will come back and update after more time has passed.

*****UPDATE*****
Taking 2 stars off after just TWO WEEKENDS of moderate use. While the hardware i coated with several layers of rustolium have held up well, the rim is beginning to rust in several areas (mainly along the base of the rim and each of the net hooks). The thought did not occur to me to repaint the ENTIRE rim. I'll try to delay the inevitable by using a few more cans of rustolium, but based on current rate, would only expect this thing to last 1-2 seasons MAX.

Love the final product but directions were not well written and it was a bear to put together.

It is also very heavy so I needed another person to help toward the end when securing the rim and backboard.

I had relatives stay with us from out of town, they had three boys and they played with it all day long. Very sturdy, great for around the pool. A little tough to put together but well worth the end result.

this is a very nice product, instructions to put together get a little confusing b/c they make it sound like there is 3 tubes, but there is only 2...it will take 2 people to put together, very nice product, metal hoop, big backboard, though the backboard is a little dead b/c not alot of support behind it, but overall a very nice product, now the test will be how it stands up to the florida sun and a salt system pool, i bought it b/c it says 5 year warrantee on everything, so as soon as it all starts rusting in 3 years i will send all those parts back...time will tell, but right now this is a much better product then anything that doesnt come w/a true sized metal rim

this is a f/up...well the hardware is already starting to rust, guess i need to go buy galvanized hardware...

about 2 yrs old now, all metal parts are totally rusted and falling apart and into my pool...called the company and they are sending me all new metal parts, at least that is what i was told...though they said rust was not covered under the warrantee so that is nice of them, but for $150 this thing should last longer than two years, the goal at my driveway has been there 10 years and i spent less money on it....

The construction is pretty solid, but it is quite complex to put together - a lot of the parts look similar but of course, putting a label on them and charging $1 more is as usual not done. When we were done, we filled it with water and it leaked at one of the side joints. I am pretty sure I didn't over tighten it, and don't understand why the design would even allow water to reach a joint. I fixed it by using rubber washers, so not a huge problem.

It's been in use for a month, and the kids are enjoying it, however, we have a salt water pool (so i am not surprised by this), but even the ring is already rusty!!! I suspect it will last 2-3 years tops.

Good construction, but it will go rusty very quickly.

AUGUST 2014. Lifetime?? Hahahaha. Despite me trying to paint it, the pole is extremely rusty, there is a huge rust stain by the side of my pool (and lots of lovely metallic elements dropping into the water). Even a cap on top of the pole to stop water going in the unpainted inside would have been useful. End of the summer, this will go in the trash. Very disappointed indeed. No, not Lifetime. About a year and half.

The pricing is attractive and the product is clearly well made. We've had it for a a few short weeks so I cannot speak to the rusting issues but it is clear that they went through some efforts to prevent the issue. The powdered paint coating is truly well done. Time will tell. I think storing the unit in the winter will bring some longevity to it. The unit is very stable and will not give at all when using the backboard for your shots. It does take a little bit of time to put it together especially by yourself but It's a quality product and I am happy to recommend it.

The product has been great once assembled and appears to be very durable. Think the directions in the packaging could be a bit more clear and the pictures on assembly could be better. Having said that if you take your time and wait til the end to tighten everything up not too hard to assemble. I have noticed some rust already inside the goal post pole. This could be easily avoided in they provided some type of cap to fit over the opening. I have 17 year old boys playing on this goal and it is standing up to all the activity, I would purchase this item again.
