plumbing a fat sac into factory tank

So, I'm about to tackle plumbing my additional fat sac into my hard tanks. I'm tired of getting on the back of the boat and filling up my additional bag with the Tsunami pump.

Anyone got any tips?

What materials will I need?

Here is a thread that shows how it's done by overflowing the hard tanks into the bags:

You should just need the fittings, hose clamps and extra hose. Not sure if adding extra run time for your pump is an issue with the 2010 boats or not. Pretty straight forward.

Wakemakers has kits made for doing this. I would give them a call. Yes you could prolly rig it up yourself but their step by step instructions and parts make it extremely easy. I just hooked my factory port hard tank up to an 1100 lb fly high sac with their kit and will be ordering a KGB kit to hook up my front 400lb sacs. Very friendly people and will talk you through any troubleshooting over the phone.

I would go with the kits from wake makers. I added the custom X2 sac on our port side and installation took maybe 15 minutes. Had to plans to do more later but we really only surf port side and haven't gotten around to more.

Not to take away from wakemakers but another option is piecing it together if you don't mind not having the quick disconnnects. You can buy everything for a rear piggy back (minus bags) for like 17 bucks at HD or Lowes. Think the kit for mine was like 40 a side.

Piecing it together is a decent option if you want to save a little bit. I technically bought the sac from wakemakers and got the hose and quick disconnects at my dealership, but only because wakemakers had the pieces on back order. But I do think the kit makes it easy and the quick disconnects are good for removing the bag to dry out when needed.

Completely agree! Normally I'm 100% on board with doing things the mcocd way but 80 bucks+shipping for 6' of hose and like 6 fittings hurts my head. I remove my sacks only for winter so it doesn't bother me to hit a hose with a hair dryer for 10 seconds 1x a season. Others may vary.
