I thought about doing this but just getting a couple extra quick connect fittings to put on the top of my 750lb bags where the air vent plug usually goes. Once I get the fittings, just stick my tsunami pump on there to just take the water from one bag to the other. It would help my fill times immensely.

I got excited when I saw it on their website, but after thinking about it, it's not really a bonus, just a cool feature.
It absolutely is a bonus for those that regularly have a crew along that will be surfing both sides. How is cutting the drain an fill time in half, not a plus? You can drain the filled sac with the OEM drain pump at the same time you are moving water to the empty sac via the transfer pump. At the same time, the OEM fill pump is filling that same empty sac. 10 minutes to drain the port and fill the stbd, is not 5 minutes.

For those that rarely surf both sides, it may not be worth the investment.

Could you not just add a "Y" fitting in between the normal pump and drain? Negating the need for a second drain fitting on your sac?

I always flip several times a session. I'm a regular foot any my wife is goofy, and I love to backside as well. My 650's fill in around 5 mins. Drain one, fill the other, and move around the loose bags while it does it's thing. If waiting 2 mins longer for everything to be settled is too much, spend the $400, I still stand by it being a "cool feature", more than useful.

Someone usually has to pee right around that time anyway, no?

You could do this for much less money if you have access to your bags. I think I might actually do this... Buy a couple of these, and just use my tsunami pump to go back and forth.

The W709 pump kit and W731 fitting is certainly more budget friendly, but think of how many people migrated away from filling via that method and moved to a plumbed in system. Pure convenience.

Well I'm gonna take one for the team and install it just to see how good it works. My boat is sold soon as summer is over and I'm sure the new owner would like the add if it's a plus. Will have it installed tomorrow evening.
