The WakeMAKERS Complete Reversible Pump System is a turnkey solution for automated filling/draining of the ballast in your boat. Build a bigger wake at the flip of a switch.
Finally, it's here! The WakeMAKERS Complete Reversible Pump Ballast System is everything you need kit to add an automated ballast system to your boat. This system will fit the bill whether you're simply adding a bow bag in your brand new boat or looking to install an automated ballast system for several bags in your older model boat.
Our turnkey ballast system allows you to choose the pump you want to use and offers the option of adding our exclusive timer module to automate the run time of your pump. We've included all the components you need to install a single ballast zone designed to serve one ballast bag. If you're planning to fill more than one bag, we recommend dedicating one complete system for each ballast bag.
This complete ballast solution will have you ready to start enjoying the performance and convenience of automated filling/draining of the ballast bags in your boat.

Preassembled Vent/Overflow Hose (15 ft.)
Exclusive Plug-and-Wake wiring Harness (20 ft. from battery to switch and 20 ft. from switch to pump)

NOTE: The WakeMAKERS Complete Reversible Pump Ballast System does not include ballast bags.
The entire line of WakeMAKERS ballast bags are designed to be Direct Connect compatible with the Complete Reversible Pump Ballast System. From our WakeMAKERS UniversalFIT Rear Ballast Bags to our WakeMAKERS CustomFIT Ballast Bags, we are sure to have the right ballast bag for your needs. Not sure which ballast bag is right for you and your boat? Our ballast experts are here to help you get set up with the bags that will fit your boat and budget.
Choose from either the WakeMAKERS Premium Reversible Pump with its 12GPM rating or the Jabsco Ballast King Reversible Pump with its high output 15GPM rating.
The number of ballast bags you wish to fill and drain will dictate how many complete systems you will need. We recommend purchasing at least one pump kit for each ballast bag you wish to fill and empty. This will replicate a factory setup and offer the very best performance.
If you choose the WakeMAKERS Premium Reversible Pump option we include 1" fill/drain hose assemblies and 3/4" Vent/Overflow hose assemblies. With the Jabsco King Pump, the Vent/Overflow hose and thru-hull fitting are upgraded to 1-1/8" size to support the additional volume this pump is able to deliver.
The Achilles heel of reversible ballast pump systems has long been that they drain below the waterline, therefore making it difficult to know when to turn off the pump(s). Our new exclusive Timer Module solves that problem by giving you the ability to pre-set the run time of the pump(s), causing them to automatically shut off when finished filling/draining. This helps to prevent possible damage to the pump and/or impeller. We include a timer module for each zone, or pump, that you select automatically.

Save time and automate your boat!
After 3 summers of tossing the tsunami pump in the lake to fill the bags, we decided to upgrade. Our prep time went from 20 minutes to about 8. The best part is the ability to fill ballast while under way from the dock to the surf spot. Fast fill and drain times make setting up to surf a breeze. We surf more now because the process is so easy.
We have a 1994 Mastercraft VRS 225. It can be daunting drilling holes in your boat. But after the first one, the rest go quick. The longest part of the install was figuring out where to put the thru hull intakes and valves. Just make sure to look for clearances and measure twice, cut once!
Fish tape helps run the electrical wires where they need to go. With this system there is no cutting and splicing wires together. Everything just clicks together.
Pumps are a bit louder than I imagined, but not obnoxious. Loving it so far!!

This system looks like plug n play system that come in new boats. It has pretty much everything you need. It does take a long time to install properly, I would say closer to 10 hrs to install. I did 3 systems.
