Why are you suggesting that? That seems like it would be next to impossible to drain.

At what point would you attach the fill line to the bag?

You'll be fine the way you have it Sham.

Thanks Guys. The Install Went Pretty Good Till I Realized I Was Short 2 Hose Clamos. Will Finish Tonight. I Am Also Replacing An Orginal Piece Of Pipe. They Were Getting Soft. That Will Mean from the Hard Tanks To The Bags And Outside Of The Boat 3/4 Pipes Will Be New!!

Sorry, guess mine's different. The hard tanks stand up so the bag lays beside it, which is why I needed the tees

Is the fill point on your hard tank at the lower bottom part with your vent at the top? I could see if the bag was next to the hard tank that trying to piggy back on it would have some issues.
