Im currently building a 1140GPH self-priming pump that can fill/empty your sacs. It definately works, but I am trying to tweak things on it. <BR> <BR>Give me an email if you are interested. <a href="mailto:leo0648@charter.net">leo0648@charter. net</a>

pro-x sacs -- pump depends if you want speed, reverse-a-bility -- auto or semi auto <BR> <BR>Rule400gph pump fills like 2000 lbs in like 5 min <BR> <BR>-if we don't watch it pushes soo much into the front bag it will bend the boat and the windshield pops out of place

Evertime I read the heading of this thread all I think is: <BR> <BR>QUESTION: Which bears best?....False, Black Bears

The Rival system isn't bad. The parts are not to difficult to source so I think you should make your own system. It is easy and a fun project. Use Fly High Pro X sacs, thats a given. As for pumps you can build it using aerator style pumps like Malibu or go with the Ballast Puppy reversible pumps like Mastercraft, Centurion, and almost all the rest. The nice thing about the Ballast Puppies is that they are easy to install and come with the factory dash ballast 3 way rocker switches. Good luck.

3 way rocker switches coming with Ballast Puppies??? i think that depends on who you buy them from. i bought two last year and didn't get anything with them...just the pumps.

Fly High Pro x series sacs are a must well worth the extra cash. I had a make a wake system in my 205V and it worked pretty well. Definitely slower than the rival but I think the price is a little better. It is easy to install all the wiring is done for you just plug and play. The only thing you will have to do is cut the thu hull water source

sounds like the only aftermarket system is the rival one huh?

And my system Andy. It uses manual valves, but they are all within 8 inches of each other so it takes about 5 seconds to flip valves. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by malibuboarder75 on April 04, 2008)
