We take all of the work out of designing the perfect ballast system that is guaranteed to be compatible.


This ballast system builder package is the result of helping thousands of customers build the perfect system for their application. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for anyone to simply choose the pump, system design, and accessories that works best for their application. Because this tool is intelligent, it will only let you select products that are compatible with one another. That means you get a system that works perfect the first time, and without becoming an expert on ballast system design and installation. The simplicity of a reversible flexible impeller ballast pump system is what makes it so appealing as both a factory option and an aftermarket upgrade. Being able to fill and drain using a single port at the bottom of a ballast bag results in a simple system. The reversible impeller pump is self-priming, which means it does not need to be mounted below the water line as it will actively pull water into the system from the thru-hull inlet fitting in the bottom of the boat.

Ballast bags are not included, but we take care of everything else. Shop our wakeboard ballast bag selection »

A Complete Ballast System Solution

This Premium Impeller Pump System is our flagship product, which means it's a complete solution. You supply the tools, your choice of ballast bag (shop our wakeboard ballast bag selection) and we'll take care of including everything else. We do offer a handful of tools that will make the installation process easier, refer to the Recommended Accessories section for more information. Thanks to the reversible pumps available with this system, and the ability to choose from either Straight Line or Fly High fittings, this system is compatible with virtually any ballast bag made in the last few years. All you need is a bag with at least one port on the bottom and one port on the top. If you need assistance selecting the correct ballast bag for your application, please contact a ballast expert.

DIY Friendly Installation

Whether you enjoy projects, or just don't have a dealer or marine service center in your area, this kit is designed to be DIY friendly. We even offer options that eliminate drilling any holes below the waterline, making the installation process that much easier and less intimidating. Any DIYer can accomplish on a Saturday in the garage. Of course if you would prefer to have your local boat dealer or marine mechanic complete the installation, we're happy to support them with the process and answer any questions they might have. To begin building your individual premium ballast system, refer to the information below when making selections from the menu above.

    Factory Ballast Inlet and Pump Upgrade
    Matt Brimmer

    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
    Steve Norris

    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.

    The complete ballast system is the easiest to install
    WakAR210 (Yamaha AR210)

    I bought the Wakemakers ballast system kit with the jabsco ballast puppy to integrate a Fly High Tube Sac into the center locker of my 2009 AR 210. It was exactly what i wanted. No more are the days of filling the bag with the Tsunami pump thrown into the water over the side of the boat. This system took me about 4 hours to install and it was worth every penny. I cant express how nice it is now to fill the sac with a flip of the switch on my dash. If you are at all interested in adding a ballast system to your boat buy this system. Also big thanks to the guys at Wakemakers for helping talk me through my install over the phone before and during the process.

    Add water ballast faster to your boat

    I have just purchased and received this system and I am working on the install as I am typing this.

    My Mastercraft already has a Jabsco pump in it but I wanted to fill some extra bags as fast as possible so I am not sitting around waiting for bags to fill.

    This way I can turn on the pumps and fill the boat faster and be either wake boarding or wake surfing as quickly as possible.
