I am just trying figure out whether or not my times are on with everyone else. How fast is everyone filling their sacs; How much weight are you filling; and how long do most manufacturers systems take to fill. thanks for the help

Ok well the calabria ballast system does not count. I meant to stipulate any ballast sytems that use pumps.

ha thanks
Actually I have another random question. The description for the attwood fat sac brand pump states that it can fill or drain the fat sac in less than 6 minutes. Is the just a bold face lie or is there something else. My attwood 750 will not even fill or drain just one of my launch pad v-drives in any less than 7.5 minutes. Is this my problem or is it just not true?

D-

Trying doing a search for "fill times"..might help you out. I'm pretty sure this has been discussed before.

PS. use quotation marks so you don't get a bunch of other crap

I am using a garden hose coupler to connect my drain pump to the drain hose (both male) and I am thinking that this is possibly ristricting flow immiediately on the output and this is what is killing my flow. However, the diameter is only maybe a (1/16) of an in at most an (1/8) so??

Ok well I took off that coupler and that decreased my time to like 4 minutes so I guess they aren't lying about the speed. Anyhow, does no one else want to post their fill and drain times.

I've got a homegrown ballast system that uses a Rule 3700 and a modified scupper type scoop system, to drain I use a 2000 GPH bilge pump. I carry 1500 pounds of water in three sacs. Fill time: 7 mins, drain time 10 mins.
