I have a 05 Mobius LSV. Running factory 3 bag setup plus 3 more bags tied into factory setup. First let me say i don't use vent lines, The factory setup Use's 1 pump for all bags and then sprinkler valves for each bag, and a Rule Reverse pump for each bag. The problem i am having is once i get the rear bags 80-90% full, the water starts bleeding past the reverse pump and draining back in the lake. I can continue to fill the bag till its 100% full but after i stop filling it drains back down to 80-90% full. The only bag that does'nt do this is the ski locker bag. I am assuming the reason being is that my hose from the reverse pump to the thru hull fitting needs to be higher. Is that the case? Or is there another solution? <BR> <BR>I always watch my bags fill and was thinking of putting a pvc ball valve right before each thru-hull fitting, and close them when i fill the bags, and then open them when ready to empty bags. I know without a vent line this could be dangerous. Also i don't have a check valve on my fill lines, any need for one?? Since i am using individual solinoid valves for each bag??

How is it dangerous to have both ends of the bag closed? If you were to fill it up with a bucket and put a cap on it, it would be the same, if I am understanding correctly... Sounds like your through hull valve idea would work pretty well. Open it when you want to fill or empty the ballast and have it closed otherwise. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by jtnz on June 04, 2008)
