Details

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

Description

After having thousands of customers ask us to build them the perfect complete ballast system for them, we created the WakeMAKERS complete ballast systems to make it as quick, easy, and simple as possible. This complete ballast system is an all-in-one package that has everything you need to automate the filling/draining of ballast bags in your boat. Simply choose the pump, system design, and the type of ballast bags you plan to integrate.

Why An Impeller Pump System?

The simplicity of an impeller ballast pump system is what makes it so appealing as both an OEM ballast system and as an aftermarket ballast upgrade. The reversible impeller pump is self-priming, meaning it does not need to be mounted below the waterline as it will actively pull water into the system from the thru-hull inlet fitting in the bottom of the boat. This gives you the ability to both fill and drain through a single port at the bottom of ballast bag. The result is an overall simpler system design and easier install.

NOTE: ballast bags are not included, equip your new complete system with WakeMAKERS Ballast Bags.

Compatible With Virtually Any Ballast Bag

The Complete Impeller Pump Ballast System is designed to be compatible with any of the hundreds of ballast bags we offer. Choose the brand of ballast bag(s) you intend to integrate with in the dropdown menu above and the complete system will automatically include all the necessary fittings for your application. If you don’t already have ballast bags that you’ll be integrating, we recommend equipping your boat with WakeMAKERS Ballast Bags for the optimal fit and supreme performance.

DIY Friendly Installation

This product is designed to be DIY friendly. Many of our customers prefer to have their local boat dealer or marine mechanic complete the installation but you can DIY and make it into a fun weekend project.

    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!

    I have not been on the lake yet to test how well it actually works. 60's all last week and 30's with snow this week! Thanks Michigan

    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
    Brandon

    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.
