Factory Ballast Inlet and Pump Upgrade
Upgraded a 2001 MB B52 220v ballast system to one recommended by the guys at Wakemakers. Kit included New 1 inch thru-Hulls, Full Port Valves, 1 inch hose, and two Johnson 720 pumps. Old Factory System took 20-30 min to full 1600 lbs of factory ballast. With the new one inch system and pumps my fill time for 1600 lbs has been reduced to just at 5 minutes! Very impressed! Thanks again Bryan!
Fastest Ballast System
The johnson ultra ballast pump is fast but I had no idea it was going to fill/drain the bags in my rear compartment in 4 minutes. I installed two of these systems in my Yamaha AR230 and boy did it make a difference. I don't use my Tsunami pump anymore. When we are ready to wakeboard I flip the switches at the dash and listen to that beautiful sound. I turn up my music of course.
We ended up adding some components to the system so that we could "drain above the water line". Took some extra hose, two 1" tees and three check valves. I like my music and didn't want to leave the pumps on when they were done draining so now I just watch the water spill out the side of my boat.
Not to toot my own horn but I did install this system myself in the drive way. Dealer quoted me $1600 to install my two bag system and I paid $900 total. It did take an entire Saturday and half of sunday to finish but boy does it look nice. Thanks to Kyle for running me through how to connect the switches and wiring. That was the hardest part.
