Asked by FRANK April 5, 2020

The telescoping adjustment raises and lowers the backboard from 4 to 6.5 feet. The backboard itself is 40" x 27".

Does a basketball come with this set and if not what kind of basketball do we buy when using for ...

Asked by Kim April 5, 2019

The ball is not included. The rim is standard sized so a regulation sized ball or smaller will work.

Does this take a regular size basketball ? Is there a specific one made for pool use?

Asked by Bob April 22, 2017

Yes the rim that comes with our Pool-Side system is designed for a standard sized basketball.

do you have a replacement backboard (for this basketball system)?

Asked by margo June 14, 2015

Excessive Rust and Chipping
This review should have been written a long time ago. I see many have the same problem. Besides the system staining our decking, small chips have dropped into our pool and stained the liner in various places. Biggest concern now is that it doesn’t eat thru our liner! Reason I gave a 2star and not 1 is because it could have been the perfect product if not rust occurring. Will be sending an email and will update here, if I can, with their response.

The steel used to build our basketball systems are made with a weather resistant powder-coated finish that protects from cracking, warping, rot or splinters. It is made to be rust-resistant. However, we recommend using a rust treatment for extra protection a couple times a year. We would like to help you get your basketball system looking good as new, please contact our customer service team at 1-800-225-3865.

Rusts out FAST
I bought this item 2 years ago. It was pulled out when the kids wanted to play basketball, but other than that was stored under shelter. It would always left rust stains on the pool decking and after 2 summers of moderate usage rusted to the point of disintegrating. The product comes with a 5 year warranty, but when I submitted my claim they said rust wasn't covered and it was the customers responsibility to treat all rust spots as they became visible. I've ordered an all plastic base pool hoop this time around and suggest you do the same. Additionally, the hoop was incredibly difficult to assemble and consistently needed to be adjusted (Clamp isn't tight enough to absorb ball bouncing off of the rim

Fun while it lasted
4th season with this hoop and already had to order a replacement pole because it rusted out.. I would suspect before long the rim will fail as well. We bring this inside in the fall and back out in the spring...so after approx. 15 months of actually being outside it's shot. When I asked about a warranty replacement the girl told me when you get steel around water you're going to get rust .. really?? It's a poolside basketball hoop. After researching different brands I thought I made a good choice but apparently not.

Rust Problems
The equipment was great until the rings around the hoop and bolts began to rust after only three month's time. The hardware is not stainless and the inside of the post also rusted. John at Customer Service shipped replacement bolts and touch up paint but once again, the hardware is not stainless steel. We love it, but it's a poolside product and should not have rusted.

Rusted Out & Stained Pool Deck
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The "Pool" Basketball Hoop is not designed to be around water. Our hoopis completely rusted and caused staining on my deck and dripped stained into the pool. Time to throw it away, repaint the pool deck and try to get the stains out of the pool.

Fun for hours!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just bought this hoop a few weeks ago as we just put in a pool. We have loved it! Great for all ages and it’s fun to get the whole family in on games!

Rusting within a week!
This product has received pretty good reviews, hence why I bought the product. I have had this unit set up (which was fairly easy) for 5 days. The rim has begun to rust, as well as th post and support arms, leaving dripping rust on my stamped concrete. If you have paid as much money as I have for a nice inground pool & concrete, you don't want rust stains, as well as the unit (built specifically for pools) looking like trash. Save your money here and invest in stainless steel.
