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.

Looks great but it is a one season item only. Even starts to rust after a few weeks. Still fun, you just have to know that it is something to be tossed at the end of summer.

Update May 2015. Repurchased this item. The set used to come with a ball and no longer does, the instructions used to be clear and now they are misleading (no words just pictures). It didn't help that the nuts that came with the bolts were not the type that would screw all the way down. I had to go to Home Depot and pick up extra hardware to put this one together and had put 2 together in prior years. Looks great when it is up but I sprayed this one down with rustoleum clear to see if I can get a headstart on rust. Also the pole is not covered so in the past I have had rust inside it. I plan on cutting a piece of thin rubber and using a rubberband so water doesnt go down the pole and rust.

The backboard and support are decent quality but beware of the rim and the hardware that is used to attach/support this unit. I have had this product for one pool season and looks like I have owned it for at least 5 years. I wish the manufacturer would replace the rim and the hardware with better quality material. Would not recommend unless you plan to buy a new rim and stainless hardware to assemble it.

Great basketball hoop for your pool. Having had a few of these this one is by far the best. Took about an hour to put together, but the instructions are decent. Definitely recommend.
Few pieces worth noting:
-Ball is not included.
-I sprayed mine with a clear coat rust proof sealant which has protected it very well.
-Would recommend getting a bag of sand and a funnel to provide support for the base.

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.

Nice basketball system for the pool. I sprayed all painted surfaces with a clearcoat before I installed and after several months not a hint of rust despite being outside by the pool since it was put together. I have the base filled with water and no leaks. Great for the kids and looks sharp. highly recommend and we will see how it holds up for next summer.

I ordered this basketball net for my pool and am very happy I did. We were using a little tikes toddler basketball hoop and my kids have been begging us for years to get a different one. Every time I've looked which has been a lot they have always been very expensive. After I researched this basketball net and saw that the price was less than half of what other stores were charging for the same one plus it has such a good look not cheap looking I knew it was the right choice. It came and my basketball loving son was thrilled. It took my husband a few hours to put it together and I was surprised at how large it actually is. We put in the 300 pounds of sand in the base to keep it secure and it looks and works great. My kids are on spring break this weak so it came at a perfect time. He has been playing with it for hours everyday and is do happy with the look and the bounce that the backboard gives. It really looks great and I am so happy with this purchase.

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.
