If the sacs are below the hard tanks you might have some issues when trying to empty them, Sham.

With the way you say you have it plumbed, it would seem hard for the pump to pull water from the sac back UP into the hard tank and then empty out.

this is the hose that leads to the outside of the boat. this is the one that i removed from the hard tank and connected to the drain of the fat sack. i replaced the pipe from the hard tank to the top of the fat sack and the job was complete. i have a good pic of the other side where u can see what i mean. it will be up in a min
