This is the real deal. We were looking for a legitimate water basketball net for our pool, and this was a bulls eye. It is built like a regular outdoor net. It has heavy materials. Very sturdy. It is not a flimsy plastic toy that will break in a season. We have a Lifetime net in our driveway that has lasted over 10 years. That one gets used a lot, and it is still going strong. This is why we bought this product. We expect to use this water basketball net for years to come. It is taller than other nets, so be aware of that. For smaller kids, this might be an issue. It is hard to dunk on because of its height. Because it is well built and heavy, it can be a bit difficult to move. Once you find a spot for it, that will probably be where it will be for the season. If you are looking for a sturdy product that seems like it will last a long time, this is it. If you are looking for a pool toy that the kids can move around easily, this is not for you. This is an update on the review - In looking at the net that is attached to the backboard, there is rust developing. The rust is also present on the rim away from the backboard. This is a problem because this product is designed to get wet. We have had this product for less than one season, and it is apparent that rust will be a problem. It seems as though this should have been something the manufacturer paid a lot of attention to. Still a sturdy product, but with the rust, I'm not sure how durable it will be.

I have read a lot of reviews about the rust issues and stuff with this one. Yes, it does rust. We have seen it leave a couple marks on the concrete but it is definitely not as bad as some of the others we have had. It holds up very well and has made it through a great summer and looks be hanging around for more. Simple maintenance such as sanding and repainting areas where chipping or rust is occurring go a long way. I believe that even in this day and age, if you want something to last, you have to maintain it. As long as you are willing to accept a little work to keep it from rusting bad, it is well worth the money!

This is a very sturdy basketball goal. The one comment I have is the directions are HORRIBLE. Be advised the smaller post has to fit inside the larger post by inserting the smaller post through the bottom of the larger post upward. Where the directions say to stand on the base to snap in the post, you have to do just that. I did follow other reviewers and painted the post and parts prior to assembly hoping to prolong the rust issue. We filled the base with water and added an extra flat cement weight to the base. The goal at our pool is on the edge of the pool hanging out over the water. The height is adjustable so no issues if you want a really tall goal. Seems very sturdy. Backboard is made out of some kind of ABS plastic but seems very sturdy when using a heavier ball. Kind of pricey, would have been a good deal at $59 or so but what the heck, Kids and friends are loving having it.

This is a wonderful, very functional product. We had been looking for poolside basketball that used a full size rim and this fit the bill. It is extremely easy to put together - our 14 year old did it himself, needing help only when it was time to put the backboard on the stand, and it was up and ready in about a half an hour using the included directions. He then filled it with water and he and his sister played there first game of many. The height is adjustable, a really great feature. It functions well at any height and can be adjusted to the size of those playing. It has sat poolside for several months now and gotten plenty of water from pool splashes and sprinkler over spray and it still looks in great shape. I plan to bring this stand in during winter just to prolong the life, but I probably do not have to as it appears to be weathering the harsh pool chemicals and our very hard water quite well. Not to mention that the hot sun has not caused any problems with any of the finishes. The item is easy to move around as the wheels function very well.

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.

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.

This is a great product and great price, I read reviews saying the instructions were poor but I found it very easy to put together, there is a couple steps you need two people but this is the same quality lifetime has for hoops in your driveway just shorter. I just was at pool store yesterday and compared basketball hoops and there was ones no wear near as good of quality made completly out of plastic for more than $100 more . This hoop is a must have if you like basketball and have pool!

The basketball hoop is great easy to assemble, but we did not buy it for a pool we bought it for our 4 and 6 yr olds because we could not find any that would go lower, our kids love it and it raises to 6 feet the others start at 6 feet and raise to 8 - 10 feet and for the price point the quality of this one is good I like that it comes with a good warranty as well its a great starter for younger children and adults alike pretty easy to raise as well. I am also sure that it would work great around a pool.

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.

It could provide a better assembly instruction pamphlet, the guy(or Gal) who wrote the one that comes with it has never put one together from scratch. So far it is doing great and is much better than the plastic (and more, expensive) one it replaced.

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.
