Comments about Lifetime 90270 52"" In-Ground Basketball System:
Assembly and installation are not too tough if you take your time. I used right at 560lbs of concrete mix to fill the hole. A 16x16x24 square hole is equivalent to the 18x24 round hole called for in the instructions. I used a 48" piece of rebar and also filled the bottom pole with concrete. The instructions said to wait 72 hours for the concrete to set but we finished the assembly after 48 hours without any problem. We had the same system at our last home and it held up very well. Great system for the price. Very easy to adjust the height also.
