Is that right? Thanks
    You got it! I had a pic but it got lost in the upgrade. I'll see if I have it saved on my computer tonight.

    Here is the check valve: http://www.wakemakers.com/marine-check-valve.html

    Just curious has anyone tried this from wakemakers; it seems a bit pricey though!

    upgrade kit includes everything you need to add a dedicated vent connection without drilling any holes in your boat. Installation takes approximately 15 minutes, and when done, your bag will be vented correctly ensure any air that ends up in the bag (from trailering the boat, putting it on your left, etc.) is able to vent during filling. In some applications, that can mean an additional 200 pounds of ballast in a bag that looked completely full, but was actually half full of water and the

    I believe that setup is exactly what we all have in mind just sourcing the parts seperately to lower the cost

    Hey ga-lsv05, I just ordered my parts from wakemakers. I got the check valve and wye fitting that brain linked to above. I spent morning going to our home depot and lowes with no luck at finding them. I also ordered the hose from wakemakers. I've used them a few times and gotta say that they are great to work with. I was mainly hoping to find parts locally so that I don't have to wait for the delivery man.

    Yea $44 isn't alot of money from wakemakers and they are great but i was thinking we could source the parts for like less than $20. Maybe not though if you've already looked

    You'll waste that $24 savings driving all around looking for the parts. Remove the stress from your life. Call Wakemakers.

    I only had to spend $34 and that is with 12' of hose + parts, I had a $5 coupon for reviewing the 1100# upgrade I got from them. Your sig. says '05 LSV but your mentioned the 2013, sounds like you're making an upgrade.

    My "only $34" should have included that $8 of that is shipping.
