Do I need to vent my IBS? I have both that and my ski locker bag hooked up to the same vent and have problems with my ibs venting and water running into my ski locker bag.

I am a fan of venting all ballast sacs. If you are filling the locker and IBS independent of each other, then they either need separate vent thru-hulls, or a check-valve in each line to prevent the venting water from running back into each sac. If you can post up a schematic of your plumbing flow, I may be able to offer more suggestions.

Sorry this is a poor picture. The green lines are my fill lines. I use a bosworth valve to switch between them. The red are my vent lines. I do have a check valve but I believe its somewhere after the lines connect

Add check valves to each line before the wye.

On all of my vent lines? It seemed a lot easier today to see when my ibs was full to shut it ofd
