You do not need to go with anything larger than 1". We use 1" ballast hose with the Jabsco ballast puppy pumps because it is easy to install and that is how Mastercraft, MB, Supra, and Moomba all plumb their systems. Using 3/4" hose would give you around the same flow rate.
Thanks for the props lakerat34. I will put a star next to Jason's name. He is the man when it comes to Wakeboard Ballast.
