What is the best option for an inexpensive balast pump. Not a total piece of junk but nothing crazy either. Is there a way for me to run the fill and the drain off the same pump as well? Thank you.

Yep. http://www.wakemakers.com/fly-high-tsunami-pump.html

Or are you trying to automate your ballast? If so the T1200 is still cheap, easy, and fast. But you'll need one to fill and one to drain.

Yeah and the T800 is even cheaper, depending on how much weight you're pumping, you could just do the 800's. I fill up 3 bags in less than 10 minutes with just two of them. Plus I maybe remember hearing something about the 1200's not having 3/4" fittings on them? 3/4" makes installs very easy.

wakemakers must have found someone to produce this , because they now have one.

12.95 is a little spendy, guess there is some r&D involved....
