Filled with water and threw a few big salt bags on top, and it's not going anywhere. Which reminds me I should drain the water and put away the salt bags before they become a hot commodity!

I had a municipal city cops give me a warning for it, no idea why they are such jerks, during COVID just trying the kids something to do

this is a great deal and I want it so badly. Unfortunately in my case to have it I have to pay 10x time more.

I saw some of these today at the Warden Costco. Can't remember the price, but there were a fair amount of them towards the back.

I hated assembling this. I still curse it as I pass by it. But,it's amazing quality and my son has learned some new curse words from his dad.

I used 150 pounds of sand and three, 60 pound patio stones. The sand was painful to put in.

I hated assembling this in case I didn't mention it yet.

Filled mine with water & added 2 gallons of anti-freeze. Used the eco-friendly, non toxic pink stuff. All of this lowers the freezing point of the water so it won't freeze, swell and crack the base during the winter.

Also added a few tables spoons of bleach. This inhibits algae growth.

Also with just the water, no patio stones or sand, it is rock solid! Lifetime also says their nets are wind tested at 40mph using water in the base instead of sand.

Last thing, the base features a very convenient wheel, so you can tip the net forward , and maneuver it relatively easily to wherever you want to stand it back up.

One annoying bit: I could not get the self drilling screws with the hex heads to tap into the pole. There were two of them and I'll need to buy a bit for my drill just to drive these things. Why they didn't use regular Phillips screws is a mystery.
