On the other side of the T I ran a line up higher than the vent thruhull and added a spring check valve from Ace hardware or from Home depot-had it a few years and just don't remember where it came from. When the ibs is full it will flow out the vent thruhull. when empting the ibs will dang near drain 99%, then when the vacuum pressure hits a certain point the spring check valve will open and let the infloor tank drain about 90-95%, then when im on the ramp pulling the boat out I have my wife hit the empty to finish the job on all 3 bags as there is allways some water left. anyway this is how mine is and it seams to work pretty good-all automated, no valves to mess with. hope this helps, if any questions feel free to ask
    I am glad to see my spring check valve idea worked. I will be installing it in the near future.

    I just installed my 1100s with the check valves in the rear compartments but I didn't buy any additional ballast piping so I can only reach the rear vent on the bag and not the front. Is it necessary to reach the front vent location?

    Has anyone put a T in the center tank to IBS line in order to put a fill/drain on both legs of the IBS?
    I just struggle to see how all the water on the opposite side of the IBS is going to drain to the one leg.

    You can try, but it will require you to drill a hole in the floor of that compartment. There are dozens of us that have done it off 1 leg without issue.

    What did you ever decide about the check valve and the hard tank situation?

    Once the IBS was fully drained, I would give the "AIR" fitting on the top center to relieve any vacuum pressure & finish draining the hard tank.
