Drop the pump in and set it and forget it.
This Telescoping system allows you to use a pump that is up to 3 times faster than any conventional Plug & Play setup - all the while not having to worry about air locking.


• HIGH VELOCITY FILLPORT - Our Eight.3 pump has a spring loaded quick connect male adapter, that is designed to easily clamp onto the high velocity fill port. Ever had an unexpected flying water hose in your boat? Not no mo’. This 1 1/2” diameter fill port has a check valve water gate and a water tight rubber cap. Fitted for our high powered Eight.3 3000GPH or 3700GPH pumps.

• VENTPORT - Eight.3 new port caps are all made with two sided vent slots which helps burp the Eight.3 system of all extra air while filling - more water equals more weight. Fill without taking off the cap completely and potentially losing it. These new 1” diameter port cap threads are twice as long, for a water tight fit.

• DRAIN PORT - In addition to draining the water here, you can also plumb this 1” diameter port into the Plug & Play of your boat.

• TELESCOPING DRY CHAMBER - Drop any size pump into our patented submersible ballast bag to drain the weight without having to attach any nozzles. The bigger the pump the quicker it drains without the inconvenience of air locking and re-priming. Because there is no priming involved with the nozzle you can now turn up the volume and use the industry’s fastest 3700 gallon per hour pump.

• WATERPROOF ZIPPER - All Eight.3 telescoping chambers include an easy to open/close TiZip waterproof zipper.

• TELESCOPE COVER - This covers the telescope dry chamber until you are ready to empty your Eight.3 ballast system. It also acts as your alarm clock when you are filling to let you know you’re done. Not sure what we mean? Fill one up and you’ll see, it’s pretty entertaining.

• HEAVY DUTY SHELL - Every Eight.3 system is crafted using ultra high tensile reinforced materials, and sonic welded seams. #prettytechstuff
