Perfect Union Fly High Twist Connect Conversion
Convert your Launch Pad, Skylon, or older Fly High sacs that use the perfect union (blue water bed fitting) connection to the new Fly High Quick Twist Connect System used with the Fly High Pro X Series Tsunami Ballast Pump.
Water bed fittings are notorious for leaking or even failing over time, making it impossible to get a water-tight connection. Plus, when you're done filling, the port in the wakeboard ballast bag must be sealed off with a rubber plug and closed off by tightening a screw on cap, a process that is rarely quick and results in a lot of water in the boat.
With our Perfect Union Conversion kit, the old style port on your bag will be permanently converted over to Fly High's Quick Twist Adapter system, which eliminates the leaky thread design, and incorporates a quick connect system with an easy to seal cap. Gone are lost plugs, constant leaks, and difficult to thread on caps, replaced forever with a secure, but easy to use connector and integrated cap secure by a chain.
Typically only one port on each bag needs to be upgraded to the new system, so plan on buying one conversion kit for each bag you want to upgrade. This is a great way to get a little more life out of your older bags, for a lot less money than replacing them.
NOTE: It is suggested that this fitting be glued into the existing port on the ballast bag using a marine adhesive for a true water tight and permanent connection.
Perfect solution for converting old sacs to work with Fly High pump! Only slight negative is that they stick up a bit out of the sac. Definitely follow the recommendation of using the marine adhesive for a more permanent fitting.
Great add to older sacs
Product even came with clamps that I was not expectin (I'm assuming to better secure the threaded adapters onto the bag since the threads aren't very reliable at holding the bag and blue adapter together)
Bought these fittings to work with an Aerial 5.5 Ballast Bag so it could be connected to my quick disconnects with the tusnami pump. Works perfectly and fits well!
Good way to add convenience
This is a good way to add convenience to older bags. I hated the waterbed style connections. I kind of wish I would have bit the bullet and got the ones with check valves though. Now I'm looking to upgrade to the ones with check valves because while the quick connects are awesome, I am now thinking that the product that keeps water from spilling out would be best.
guys at wakemakers are very helpful. Parts are made extremely well and work excellent
