    Pool basketball hoop pole... where to get a replacement?

    We have an in-ground pool in AZ with a deck hole for a pool-side basketball hoop. The hoop itself and backboard are fine, but since we have a salt pool, the bottom of the pole that the backboard attaches to has corroded, so I need to replace it. For the life of me, I cannot find just the pole. Any help or suggestions?

    My pool:
    89' perimeter, 15,150 gallons, depth: 3x5x4
    Hayward C5025 w/Hayward 2HP tri-star pump, 2" PVC piping
    Goldline Pro Logic P4 w/salt system and Aqua Pod wireless remote
    Magnasweep in-floor cleaning system
    Pebbletec Caribbean blue
    Grotto w/waterfall and rock slide
    Play-step w/water feature

    I'd go with a stainless piece to replace it with. Check with some fabrication/welding shops, or steel suppliers.

    Can you fabricate something using PVC?

    I wish I could find such a place around here that had something that would work...

    Not sure PVC would be strong enough to hold the backboard and rim up (it's a full breakaway one with a very heavy backboard).
