    Now there’s an interesting thought. Did it affect the operation of the bilge siphon itself? Did you have to do anything to make sure the siphoning of the foot wells didn’t take vacuum away from the in hull bilge siphon system?

    The venturi really doesn't start sucking until one gets on-trottle. I don't know about anyone else... but getting on-throttle causes the ski to lunge forward on-plane and any water in the wells to spill rearward, so I'm not seeing the point really. I guess some models might eject water more easily than others perhaps, but on mine, the water be gone way before the venturi could get going.
    Next, such a tie-in might compromise the bilge evacuation efficiency.
    As pointed out already, gravity drainage not possible due to the high loop.

    I used 2 T fitting and one for the 2 hull siphon tubes and one for the foot wells but I used a check Valve on both sides also to prevent water from going back in while in N

    Do all three inlets actually draw water?

    Balancing a mild suction across three branches I would be expecting one branch to be favored in terms of flow/suction effect.
