Fill your WakeMAKERS FIT Series ballast bags quickly and easily with our P12-170 Portable Ballast Pump.

We take great pride in the fact that there is probably no one else in the world that has spent more time using a ballast pump. Different brands, different models, in different applications; just a lot of time using pumps to move water, whether for testing, or for actually playing on the water. Almost a decade ago, in 2012, we introduced our original portable ballast pump, the Elevate Turbo pump. It was designed to be a better version of one of the more popular pumps on the market, but fixed a number of design flaws that pump had, which made it very popular.

Ultimately that pump transformed into our P12-170 Portable Ballast Pump, which is designed to integrate with our FIT Series ballast bags using our unique CamLOK connector. The P12-170 is designed to fill WakeMAKER's fatsacs faster with a hose that will not kink. The true 1-1/8" hose is reinforced to eliminate kinking when hanging over the side of the boat. Anyone that's used a Fly High Tsunami Pump can attest to the way their clear hose collapses during use especially when it is hot outside. As the diameter of the hose is restricted the flow of water is slowed and it takes more time to fill and drain ballast bags. The P12-170 has fixed this issue, which means you get the true rated capacity of the pump.

WakeMAKERS designed the pump to be compatible with the CamLOK connector system that adapts to the 1" port diameter on WakeMAKERS ballast bags. The P12-170 pump has a new and improved design and it is comparable in price to the Fly High Tsunami Pump. Time is money, and the P12-170 Pump will help you spend more time behind the boat wakesurfing and wakeboarding and less time trying to un-kink your hose.

Hose Length: 11 feet

Wire Length: 12 feet

How it Works The P12-170 Ballast Pump is durable, dependable, and fast with a 1" non-kink hose. To fill your WakeMAKERS Ballast Bags, simply connect the hose to the CamLOK Adapter on the bag you need to fill. Drop the pump end into the water, and plug the cigarette lighter adapter into the 12v accessory plug (usually by the drivers seat).

To drain your ballast bags, reverse the connection of the pump and secure the pump body directly to the bag. Place the end of the hose over the side of your boat and plug the adapter once you are ready to begin draining.
