I think I know the answer to this but is there a way to add a drain port to a ballast bag? Is it something wakemakers can do for me? I have a 05 enzo and have a 1100lbs sac in the back locker and a sac under the seat (can't remember size) I like this setup over the enzo sac but the 1100 does not have enough ports. I want to fill with the stock fill and drain drain with the stock drain and also add a jobsco pump to fill and drain with. So I know its a long shot but can a hole be added?

Hmmm I did what you are talking about with my last boat (05' Sanger V230) and I just ran the fill to one of the top ports and the drain off the bottom port.I am not sure it would be good to attempt a non factory installed port on a ballast bag =-/

not really something I want to do my self just didn't know if I could have it done. I can run the 2 fills I want to also run two drains. seems like it takes forever to drain the 1100

I did it several years ago to one of my boats. Just cut a small round hole, pushed a plastic thru hull in and screwed it down tight with some RTV sealant (the normal outlet is inside the bag). Worked great.

Thank you. That was exactly what I was looking for. Now I can double fill and drain. I'm guessing the stock pump and jobsco pump should be able to fill 1100lbs in around 6min. Not sure on drain time but should be nearly the same. Seems like draining with just the stock pump took 15min or more.
