Much better than just using water

By nsam

Comments about H2OLD BaseGel:

Used on a free standing punching bag. Only used about 1/2 of the bag, but was plenty for that application. Heavy enough to not fall over but not to heavy to move if needed. Better than just using water since this creates a gel and avoids the splashing back and forth that you would normally get

Comments about H2OLD BaseGel:

Filled the base 3/4 full with water. Added half the volume of base gel. Continued filling base with water leaving air space at top. Added remained of base gel.
The product was easy to use.

I didn't think it would work so well!

By Hoop Mizer

from Fullerton, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about H2OLD BaseGel:

I have an mobile basketball hoop that had a small leak in the base and it would only hold water for an hour or so. I had gone with sand bags the last few years until I found this product. I used one bag of the base gel and it has worked great so far. No leaks, hoops seems very stable.

Update to review from 2/12/2014

By Chris

from Illinois

Comments about H2OLD BaseGel:

I am writing this as a separate review, since this website doesn't allow updates, edits, or the removal of reviews. On 4/4/14, I received a replacement package of BaseGel from customer support. I drained and refilled the base, adding the BaseGel per the instructions, and it worked flawlessly. I would definitely use this product again.

      Comments about H2OLD BaseGel:

      I purchased this from Sports Authority for my son's new portable basketball hoop in October. I followed the directions precisely, but the water never even slightly congealed. Although customer support responded after a couple emails, indicating that this sometimes happens and that they would send out a replacement, they never did. Repeated attempts to contact the company over several months were ignored. I'd give them zero stars for all the hassle and my wasted time, if I could...
