Can I add PNP to the Midship Hard Tank?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have a 2013 247 LSV with rear hard tanks (#200, #225) and PNP bags (#1500 each) and a Midship hard tank (#645) with no PNP. I have a integrated bow bag (#725) that I use a manual pump for. I am wondering if I can add the front bow integrated bag as a PNP to the Midship hard tank/pump?  This would create pretty equal distribution throughout the boat as well as  gallons per pump. Has anyone ever done this? Any Issues?

Plug n play means to plug up a sac, and go surf or board. In 2013, there was no PnP plumbing option, so there is nothing to plug a sac up to. You would have to add in your piggyback style plumbing, which can be done.

I am not sure how it would work on a 2013, but here is an install guide from one of our more gifted members if you would like to follow his example:

That is incorrect on multiple levels

Then lay out those levels, the floor is yours.

@mfranksj9 - MLA's correct.  Malibu coined then term "plug and play", or PnP as a marketing approach to their system that refers to having all the plumbing in place for adding additional bags.  All you have to do is connect your separately purchased bags up and go.  No plumbing modifications required.  There is not any sort of PnP setup with the midship ballast. 

The piggyback system is a wakemakers package that allows you to interrupt the current plumbing of your hard tanks to add additional bags into the mix.  As he stated, you could go the piggyback approach, as you would need to modify your current system.
