I am looking for someplace that sells vented loops for my bags. Anyone know a place that sells them? Thanks.

I have them with 3 of the Tsunami pumps. Ever since I put them in, I have been very happy with the ballast system. Look at my photos of the ballast I built.

Because the pumps aeriate the water when they fill, our Fat sacks fill with air leaving our bags half full because the pumps are too weak to overcome the resistance of the air pressure to fill the bags full of water. The vents are mounted as high as possible (the fill side hose) ahead of the bags and as the water is pushed up the hose and through the vent the air exits out of the bleeder valve on top of the vent. I ordered mine from Wakemakers.com, they were @ 26.00 apiece I beleive. There are a couple of threads on the site that show the installation on the back side of the rear seats.
