Should I fill the portable base with sand or water?

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.

4 out of 5 stars Just what I needed
by Don from Hays, NC on 3/28/2010
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
We have been playing on it everyday since it came. The instructions were clear, but some exploded diagrams would have saved time. The product is sturdy and well made. I not only filled it with water, but also placed 150 lbs of sand on top of the base. While all of the neighbors goals went down during a recent windstorm ours hardly budged. Highly recommended!
