I would try to see if you can find some wood to do it yourself. Going the contractor route would make it not worth doing, but if you could find a way to do it yourself, you could do it at a very reasonable cost.
I just got a new home with a pool, and my kids want a pool hoop. Based on what I have read, I think it is safe to say that this pool basketball hoop http://waterbasketballhoop.com/best-poolside-basketball-hoop/ is the best right now. I just wanted to know what everyone's experience is with pool basketball hoops, and could you give an estimate for how long they can realistically last? thanks in advance for your response.
