Top pad replacement

Unread postby Cooleo111 » Mon Nov 19, 2012 6:17 pm

Has anyone ever replaced just the top pad for a pit? I don't have any experience buying pits or anything like that, so I'm just wondering if it's possible, and then how much it costs. Any help is appreciated! :)

We replaced our top pad and rain cover 2 years ago. Cost was around $4500.00. ours was for a port-a-pit. not sure who our head coach contacted.

Yup just contact the manufacturer and they'll give you a quote. They're not cheap, but cheaper than a whole new pit.
