    BACOENG 1" DN25 Stainless Steel NPT 2 Port Motorized Valve (AC/DC9-24V CR04 Two Wires Spring Return When Power Off Electric Ball Valve) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010LT2NPY..._gB1NzbHBQS90G

    I went with 1" valves, however, 3/4" are on same page and are $38. Amazon prime too!

Add vent lines and check valves and you're done. It will fill faster than the reversible pumps. It's easier, cheaper and works as good.

    Search eBay for the electric ball valves. They're maybe $50 each.

    If he wants to go with the electric ball valves, I'd be happy to sell him a pair for $50 shipped for both.

    20 minutes is too long for me. I can do 3500+ pounds of ballast (and I regularly do) in ~8 minutes. Did I have to pay for my upgrade in time and money? Yup. But I wouldn't go back and do it with any other solution that would take longer.

    Are you using diesel sump pump and 2" lines?

    I wish!!!

    I'm using T1200 aerator pumps on each of the rear 1100's and also on the 1180 playpen bag. (1 fill and 1 empty pump for each bag with 1.25" lines and dedicated thru hulls for each pump.). I'm using a Johnson reversible on the OEM scupper intake with the OEM 3/4" line to fill/empty a 400 bag and another 250 bag that are under seats.

    So at any given time I'll have up to 4 pumps running.

    I've seen a similar set up on here; But never saw results posted. It just proves there's always a better way! I don't think any reversible pump system could match what you're getting. Nice work!!

    Yes they do and it's a much simpler install. If the aerator pumps are better then why has every boat manufacturer switched to using reversibles?

    I went with the same basic setup as aerolland. I purchased these - https://ussolid.com/motorized-ball-v...u-s-solid.html - and have drastically reduced my fill time. It was an easy install too.

    The aerator empty pumps can fickle. They can get air locked and stop pumping, they don't always empty the bags completely. These issues are pretty easy to fix. The reversible pumps definitely offer a cleaner install and probably don't cost the manufacturer as much in warranty repairs.

    If I was buying a new boat, I would want the reversible pumps. But sinking the $ into a used boat that already had the aerator system in place didn't make sense to me. I'm having dreams of a 2019 Craz.

    I love the fact that we all share ideas, successes and failures. I've learned so much from this group. The group of amazing folks on this forum is top reason I plan to stick with Moomba.
