How many lbs of sand to fill 40gal portable basketball goal?

Postby Guest » Mon Sep 15, 2008 9:56 pm

I need to fill a portable basketball goal. It holds 40 gallons of space. Home Depot sells sand in 70lb bags. I was just gonna buy about 3 bags and hope that was enough. Anything more specific for me?

Thanks

40 gallons is approximately 0.2 yd³
Dry sand is about 2700 lb/yd³ so you probably need about 540 pounds.

Can you also fill with water? That would be about 330 lb.
