Ok to fill base with polymer gel? Or must use sand or water?

Asked by: Anonymous
You may fill the base with polymer gel, but the disadvantage is that it will be impossible to drain the base and the weight will make it difficult to relocate the system.

Customer Reviews

50 in. Fusion Speed Shift Portable Basketball System is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product! Item arrived as expected. Assembly was fairly simple, took about 2 hours. Product is sturdy and easily adjusted from 8 to 10 feet. I wanted to use sand in the base and due to the size of the opening it is very time consuming. I gave up after 2 bags and finished with water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied Customer Arrived within expectations. Materials appear to be good quality. Packaged nicely. Not as difficult as I thought it would be to put together. I did put some things together that I later had to switch around because the directions did not make it clear which way they went on. I had to file two holes that a bolt didn't fit likely due to paint. The adjustment mechanism works very nicely. There is some wobble of the backboard when imapacted by the ball, but I don't know how this would compare to other portable systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable basketball system Great product. Assembly was a bit complicated but worth it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good size, solid construction, decent instructions Home Depot Specific: Ordered on 12/24 received on 1/2 as stated. Not bad coming from UT to IL over two holidays. Arrived without any damage to the box whatsoever. Product specific: Similar to other reviews I was a bit skeptical of the backboard at first glance as it's all plastic. However, after putting it together and trying it out it seems solid with a decent rebound for a portable system. In ground systems will give a better/more solid rebound than a portable system in general but as I said, this was decent. Many of the other parts (excluding the base) are steel or metal and are very sold. Assembly time: For the do-it-yourselfer it should take about 3 hours give or take, that's how long it took me and I'm not in construction or a mechanic, but I've always liked to tinker. It is heavy so you should have others available in case you need them for certain steps. If you are not a do it yourselfer it is still fairly straightforward, but you'll want to leave yourself a bit more time to digest the instructions and undo the steps you did incorrectly :) Instructions/parts list: Better than most I've seen for similar projects. The parts are very well laid out with many shown actual size in the parts list and referenced to which bag they are in. Parts are separated into bags for each major section of the project. The instructions are mostly pictures with some written instruction. The pictures were pretty true to the actual parts so it was easy to tell the orientation of a part. I only had a couple of instances where the step wasn't very obvious based on the picture and one of those was because I was almost done and was getting impatient. The height adjustment works very well. I measured the height at the highest and lowest points and it was 10' and 8' exactly. Filling the base: Either sand or water are recommended. I used sand - 362 lb, sand capacity vs. 31 gallon (~260 lbs) water capacity. Water is certainly easier and the holes seem to be geared to the size of a hose which makes using sand and a funnel a somewhat tedious process. I used sand because I wanted the extra weight to keep it from tipping over. If you have kids jumping up and down waiting for it to be completed, fill it with water but come back later, dump it out and use sand...sand will take an hour or more to fill it up. After messing with a funnel for a while I thought to use a plastic plant watering "can" where you can unscrew the white "sprinkler" head at the top. The downside is you're pouring the sand twice...once into the can and once into the base, but it made the job MUCH easier. Quality: It seems to be engineered very well and the instructions make it fairly simple to put together correctly so that it's constructed well. I can't speak to the durability as I've only had it a few days at this point but based on initial quality I feel comfortable it will last at least as long as the warranty (5 years). If you do buy this - which I recommend at this price point - in one of the last steps of the instructions it shows to use the closed end of a combination wrench to pull the end of a spring over a bar/spacer. I found this to be challenging and ended up using a pliers which took about 3 seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good My grandkids love this! They are 5, 8 and 12. My daughter and I put this together by ourselves - a bit challenging but we did it! Because our winters are so cold, we opted to fill it with sand rather than water and we put a couple of sand bags on the base for extra support.
