    Default fill bag's faster

    does anyone know of a faster way to fill bag's, I have a 2006 supra launch and it fill's slow.
    Has anyone used a pump that you toss over the side and attach to one bag at a time.

    Does your 06 have a dedicated pump for each sac/tank or does it have the single pump that pushes through sprinkler valves?

    I just switched to Tallulah High Volume pumps. I can board 3600lbs of water in 3 minutes.

    @wylietunes asked the good question. Plenty of options depending on how much you want to spend.

    Ball Valves w/pumps
    Aerator pumps
    Reversible Pumps - different options here.
    All work with switches. Wiring and plumbing might need to be changed.

    They sell the quick fill pump that plugs into a cig lighter that you throw overboard. Works well. I've used the in floor ballast bags during light crew days. Have to change bag fittings. But you will have to do this every time you want to fill and empty. It turns into a PITA.

    Just upgrade the manifold from the sprinkler valves to the electric actuated ball valves. I can fill mine in a lot less time than it took with the old style valves. And it was a cheap upgrade. Iím still using all the stock pumps and hoses.

    While there is certainly a difference in flow rate between a sprinkler valve and an electric ball valve, the setup is still asking a single pump to fill multiple sacs. Adding one or two more pumps, so each sac/tank has its own dedicated fill pump may be a larger upfront investment, weigh the dollar to flow rate of the options.
