    One would assume if you have 25% more GPM, the lines would need to be 25% larger. I still think you will need to keep an eye if you see continuous water off the side of the boat.

    I see what MLA is saying on the flow - but with all the variables, who knows the breaking point of a bag vs a connection pops off if you cross the line when the Out Flow Vent Pressure cannot keeping up with the In Flow Pump pressure. I do not read about many people busting bags or ports with Jabsco Pumps and the smaller 1" or 1-1/8" with 3/4" or 1" vent lines.

    Timers should auto-shutoff the bags and not leave the pumps in the state of fill or empty. I did not have timers on mine, so if someone bumped the switch, I was the only person looking or would notice water shooting off the side of the boat.

    On the opposite side, I noticed several times w/o ballast as we cruised down the lake and the a pump was switched to DRAIN by accident. You can hear the pump buzzing/growling when there is no water in the bags. Timers should auto-shutoff the bags and not leave the pumps in the state of fill or empty. Those bigger pumps will make a big noise difference if they were pumping water vs no water to pump.

    From Wakemakers:
    Jabsco Pumps: 10.6 GPM. 1000# sack fills at 88#/min or 11.3 mins
    Talulah Pumps: 13.5 GPM. 1000# sack fills at 110#/min or 4 mins
    The GPM flow is increased by appx 25%

    Except, neither of these pumps are the pump being used. he's using the 30 GPM Hi-Flow, so roughly 3X the flow rate of those two.

    Standard Talulah Pumps: 13.5 GPM. 1000# sack fills at 110#/min or 9 mins
    Thats better

    Thanks MLA. I was looking at the other Johnson pump. Wrong one.

    Still amazed at the output of that thing.

    Didn't know how many of those pumps had some type of 'run dry protection'.

    Never really paid attention to it.

    That's the add for the pump, but it has a warning on the box not to run it dry. There are no instructions provided, other than what's printed on the box. My impression is that running dry will damage the impeller, but the motor will protect itself after the impeller melts down?!?

    If the impeller is spinning dry, it would be probe to cracking. When they start to go bad, the vanes will crack.

    Well, I'm bored stiff. I got the wake plates working great...and I have a fix for the position sensors on the side plates, and I started running those elephant trunk hoses for the new pumps...then the ice storm hit. I have been stepping on the rear upholstery so much that several seams started splitting. So big deal, I ordered fresh marine grade vinyl and was ready to move my work indoors during the immanent ice storm. Trouble is Amazon shut down before they brought my Tenara thread.

    Bummer.

    I'm one of those types that needs projects to survive, and I was so close to being set up to finish the upholstery...but not going to happen. Could be worse, though. Many here are living in their cars as their homes are heatless with broken pipes. The boat is full of 12 inches of snow (we don't generally GET snow here! The lift has 18 inches of ice grown onto it. Instead of squeak squeak with the waves, it goes crackle crunch. So much for that hope 2021 would be a better year! You can skate on pools and most lakes have frozen over for the first time in my life. I know this sounds like nothing to those up north...we just have no capability for this kind of cold down here. Bad designs, bad planning, bad preparation.

    The good news, against the general widespread claims...solar and wind are putting out more than they were prospected to...
