  • 2004 SANTE piggyback to Bow Sac?

    I am interested in plumbing my new bow sac to piggyback off my belly tank in a 2004 210 SANTE.

    A is my fill port, B is my empty port and C is my overflow port.

    Does anyone know can I do this with this set up and if so what is the best way?

    Will I need to use check valves and if so where?

    Wakemakers says I cannot but I have heard people doing this in the 2006 model.

    I would also be interested if anyone has come up with a solution for increasing the ballast with this type of factory setup.

      The reason some 06's are piggy backed is because 06 is the first years 210's started using jabsco reversible ballast pumps.
      I don't think you can do with your set up.I believe you'll have to add another pump for additional ballast. I'm not sure and I do not have your ballast set up. Wakemakers does have the directional Y valves that you could maybe install at your pump but you'll still need a pump to drain it. If I were you and wanted this I would install a jabsco reversible pump to the bag with its own switch and overflow out side of boat . Done

        Ok, I would certainly do that does anyone know the best way to plumb, mount the pump, and wire that set up.

        Dkimball, the Sumo 750 bag fits well in the bow under the seats after you cut the cooler out, be sure to avoid the wires you can see under the dash with the kick plate removed.
        Use an oscillating saw and give your self 2 and 1/2 hours or more depending on your cutting skills. Must remove in 3 pieces.
        The boat now throws a surf wake using a suc gate and 800lbs in each rear compartment.
        I am Using a Manual pump to fill the bow bag.

          Thanks Cpohl. I actually have a 2003 direct drive air 216 with the rear ballast and I was hoping I could piggy back to the hard tanks in the trunk. I was told same as you from wakemakers that Nautique changed the pumps in 2006 so it is only available from then on. I was thinking along the same lines as you and hoping that someone else figured out how to make the stock system work.
