Internal ballast pump to fill fat sac? Plus livewell? CSX

So I have a 2-part question, if there was a previous thread on this, send me the link please.
I currently have a 2007 Mastercraft CSX 220 with 3 internal ballasts (1 front mid, 2 rear either side.)

1. I want to use 1 or a couple fat sacs on the rear deck of the boat for wakesurfing, my goal is to add another 1500lbs in sacs. Has anyone setup a system using the boat internal pumps to fill their fat sacs? I was thinking it would work if you add a T valve and a on/off valves with a hose under one of the rear seats coming off the hose that feeds one of the rear ballasts. If not, is this something I should not consider? Why not? If you have this setup, can you provide pics and cost to setup?

2. Has anyone had the CSX livewell installed on their boat? If yes, does it go in the port or starboard side rear corner cushion? Could the rigging for this also be used to fill external ballasts?

Thanks for the input

You just need to piggy back the bags to your existing hard tanks. Go to Wakemakers.com for parts and info.

Not really feasible for a CSX type application. I would look into a super sac'r system
