Q: Should I fill the portable base with sand or water?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 1:11:31 AM
A: That depends entirely on how much weight you think you will need to hold up to how the system will be used. As noted on the product, when filled with water, the base weighs about 248 lbs. When filling the base with sand, the base typically weighs about 1.5 times the weight of the base filled with water, depending on the density of the sand you use. Note that the heavier the base, the sturdier the system; but, the system will also be more difficult to move.

Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 1:11:29 AM
