|flow-tec makes some awesome stuff. I just ordered them. They are 3/4" i.d. which you cannot find anywhere else without some type of reduction on the male side. Thanks for the tip B.T. Lowe... |
One of the barbed to male fittings is not on the site but they are adding it. If you call, they can get it for you.
|Glad to be of service...I had these on my '01 MasterCraft, and I loved them. We retrofitted my buddy's Moomba, and he couldn't be happier. |
One of the biggest complaints regarding bag type ballast systems is the mildew from leaky fittings.
The Flow-rite system elminates leaks altogether and has the added bonus of making bag removal for drying everything out after a wet day (rain, bow submersion, etc.) a snap!
I'm surprised they haven't caught on to promoting their products in wakeboard publications since MasterCraft uses their parts as OEM.
|Ty, the link for the company web page doesn't work. What is the name of the company-- I looked under flow-tec and flow-rite but no success. I would like to get a few of those quick disconnects. |
OR try www.flow-rite.com and go to the store than fittings.
|Thanks, the site works now. Might have just been they were working on the site when I tried to log on before. |
|here are the pics. |
Love the pictures. It's the only way slow learners like me figure things out.
What are the respective part numbers?
|Do you still need to have a shutoff valve on the bag with these Qwik Locs ???|
|Yes. you need the valve still.|
|Tye, what is the thing in the last picture in your email photo series? |
How are the quick connects held to the sak--do you have the quick connects just between hoses that go to the saks or do you put one of the connects right at the sak opening? What are the clamps that hold the hose to the quick connect pieces?
Where did you get your shut off valve?
|The first piece goes on the tube just after the ball valve. The ball valve can be had at any hardware store. White plastic with a red handle. Just above the red ring you pinch the black side and it open the teeth that lock the two pieces together. The third is the male on the pump. So you have a male on the pump. A male on the tube end from the pump. A female on the sac. Works like a champ and very quick and easy. You can actually put the disconnect anywhere on any hose.|
