As you may (or may not) know, we're located in Portland, OR, home of great coffee, fixed gear bikes, and most importantly, the Portland Trailblazers. Growing up in Oregon, the Dream Team was a part of our childhood, so after some rough years, and suffering through the Jail Blazers, it's great to finally have a team to be proud of.
Game 3 is coming up tomorrow night in Houston, and you can be sure we'll be tuning in.Read More

vented loop. As shown above, a vented loop is a "U" shaped plastic fitting that is installed in series with the fill pump when using aerator pumps. During filling, the vented loop is invisible, functioning as a section of hose without any limitations. The beauty of the vented loop only comes into play when the the fill pump is turned off, which means there are no drawbacks to implementing its use. When water is not being forced through the fill hose, air (but not water) is allowed to pass through a vent at the top of the loop, which allows the column of water from the vented loop to the fill pump to drain down to the level of the pump. It is this column of air (typically at least two feet long) that prevents water from siphoning into, or out of the ballast bag when the pump is not running. Many people are under the impression that water is forced past the fill pump due to the boat running at speed, but it's not possible to develop that much pressure, and it actually just the siphoning process that allows the bag to fill or drain. The vented loop solves that problem by creating a break in the column of water running from the pump to the bag, so siphoning is not possible. To function correctly, the vented loop needs to be installed close to the ballast bag in question, and as high above the water line as possible. For forward ballast bags, the typical installation location is under the driver's dash up near the windshield. In the back of the boat, up under the gunnel, whether in direct drive or v-drive boats, is typically the best location. If you have any other questions about the vented loop in particular, or ballast systems in general, please feel free to contact us. Shop for Vented Loops »Read More
