Planning phase three and Im looking for info.
I have one pump on the keel locker bag now.
I would like to install two V drive sacs.
Do I need one or two more pumps and why?

Wellllll, right now I am running two pumps for three tanks... since my center pump died on me (02 X-10). I routed some house to fill the two rear tanks with the same pump at the same time, and it works pretty well. But it filled quicker with the two separate pumps (obviously).

One two way pump could do it, but I refer two! I like the self priming 2 way pumps because they both fill/empty and you can control the size of the sac independently with a switch instead of two manual valves, keeping in mind you would have to have a two way splitter and two valves. Budget, fill/empty time, resale, etc all have to be in mind when contemplating a custom ballast, I think!

Just one pump

Thanks guys.

Im thinking it would be nice to push a button to empty the port side rear bag. Then I could surf facing the wake for once.

But I might be too cheap and lazy to realize my dream.;(

Checking back in.... still think 2 pumps.... Why not do it right the first time! I'd kick my own ass if I completed a half ass ballast system. I believe wakeboarding is all about the experience.... being able to spend more time enjoying the "on the water experience" the better. Building the better mouse trap not only betters your boat, it allows for less work and more play!
