Any place online you guys use to get this stuff? Had it at the local hardware store, but it was heater hose and had white writing all over it. Figured you guys would know a good place to get it by the foot.

Also, I'm switching out the factory bag in our Outback for a Fly High Pro X sac. Problem is, the factory sac has the 3 fill connections on the ends; the new sac has one connection on the end and two on the top. Thus the need for the hose. My question...can I fill and empty from one connection? What would I need to do this? Currently I have one hose for fill, one for drain, and one for vent.

On a side note, I tried it out yesterday (using a over-the-side pump) and it almost doubled the wake. Still need to throw some weight under the front seats to get it where I want it.

This is the sack I'm going to use. The fittings are not as pictured.

I bought my new ballast plumbing hose at either Lowes or Home Depot. I bought both 3/4" and 1" there. It is the clear stuff with the white crosshatching reinforcing in it. It should be in the section with the water filters and shower heads and such. They also sell most of the fittings that you may need. Good luck.
