Shurflo Piranha 1100GPH Aerator Ballast Pump
The Shurflo Piranha 1100gph pump housings are constructed of high density nylon and come complete with a heavy duty water cooled motor making it the toughest solution for most ballast applications. Patented ant-airlock feature allows the pump to clear trapped air for unparalleled reliability. Easily remove the cartridge for easy cleaning.
Shurflo's Piranha series wakeboard ballast pump have been the pump of choice for Malibu and Sanger boat companies for a few years, and for good reason; they offer high pumping efficiency for fast fill times with minimal current draw, and or a durable product that offer many hours of trouble-free operation.
Starting in 2011, Malibu began offering a 1,100GPH version of the Piranha pump as part of their Hi-Flo ballast system. With a larger capacity motor and 1-1/8" discharge connection, an increase in volume of over 37% meant ballast filled and drained faster than ever.
Whether you simply need to replace a factory fitted pump that no longer operates, or if you're looking to expand or build a new ballast system, Shurflo's Piranha 1,100 high capacity aerator pump is a great choice.
2003 LSV OEM ballast replacement
Bought this to replace OEM ballast pump in 03 Malibu LSV to fill 1100# fat sacs in rear compartments. Fit perfectly, installed easily, and fills bags quicker. Nice product.
OEM ballast pump replacement for 2012 VLX
My original Shurflo Piranha pumps have lasted 4 years (200 hours in my case). I've only had one fail so far. That is not bad for basically a livewell plastic pump. Wakemaker's price for the exact replacement & their quick shipping can't be beat. You could try to find a replacement motor cartridge - but I've yet to find one at a good price point. The new one works just like the original. Note: you don't have to pull the entire pump out of the boat. You can just remove the top & pull out the motor. Then put the new motor in the old housing if you want to.
