    Pretty Legit

    I had my dealer install these bags on my 2012 MXZ on top of the hard tanks. I went with the 600 sacs. My surf wave got a lot better and my wake is huge now. They drain and fill with ease. My only problem with them is that they cause the rear coolers to pop out when full and sometimes cause the engine compartment panels to pop out of place. Still worth the upgrade though.

    Worth Every Dollar

    Even though it was a bit of a pain to install - WM helped me through it. The new double bottom port bags drain so much faster - it's an essential upgrade. There are so many ways to customize your ballast now with WakeMakers!
    My VLX surfing experience is a lot better with the ability to drain & fill so fast with the piggy back setup.

    Great Service

    You will not beat the service from WakeMakers.com. I had an early model 2012 with the 3/4" hoses and they took the 2012 kit back and sent out the proper kit. Walked me through all the steps for install. Thanks again!

    Sometimes the system doesnt fully drain, is there a fitting and a pump that I can attach to fully drain the bags? I dont like leaving that much water in the boat.

    Hi Michael,
    Malibu boats utilize the Shurflo Pirhana aerator pump for the stock ballast system. Aerator pumps are not capable of self-priming or sucking water until the bags are completely dry, even if a check valve is added in the vent. This was also the case with your hard tanks, 100% of the water was never fully drained out. Now, if you add an impeller pump to the system and a check valve to the vent, it will suck the bag dry. But this is not a realistic solution just for a few inches of residual water in the bag.
