Congratulations, you’re on your way to improving your wake! There are three options to add extra ballast to your boat:
- First, and most simple, a portable Bag and Pump Combo. If you are just getting started adding ballast to your boat or want a quick and simple ballast solution that is ready to go straight out of the box, one of our portable ballast bag + pump combos is a great option. With this option take measurements of your locker space (L”xH”xW”) and match that with the bag dimensions in one of our combo packages. These packages come with WakeMAKERS UniversalFit Bags, all necessary fittings, and a Fly High Fatsac Supa Tsunami Pump.
- The next solution is with our exclusive line of WakeMAKERS Factory Ballast Upgrades. This is one of the most effective ways to add additional ballast to your boat and build a better wake. We have developed a series of ballast upgrades that directly connect and increase the overall capacity of the OEM factory ballast system in your boat while still using the stock ballast pumps for automated filling/draining of the bags at the flick of a switch. These upgrades are designed to be a DIY, user-friendly project that the average boater can install in their own garage.
- The Final option is to install a Complete Reversible Ballast System. This a turnkey solution for automated filling/draining of ballast in your boat. Build a bigger wake at the flip of a switch. The WakeMAKERS Complete Reversible Pump Ballast System is everything you need to add an automated ballast system to your boat.
Once you’ve selected which complete system is best for you, take measurements of your locker space (L" x W" x H") and match that with a bag size in our UniversalFIT Rear Locker Series to directly connect your bags to the system. Our Complete Systems come with all the fittings to connect your bag to the system.
The Complete Reversible System is a customizable product that allows you to choose how many zones you want, type and speed of pumps, and the options for a fill and drain timer.
