    I get motion sick real easy and a half full 200gal tank is driving me crazy. I found some from Rittenhouse that are pretty open. Do these work well and do you have to pull them out to mix so the agitation will work?

    We run these in our liquid salt tanks and they work GREAT! We have quite a few in our 300 tank and it cut the sloshing down to nothing even when the tank is half full.

    No you do not have to take them out of the tank when mixing. Tank agitation will flow right through the balls. The ones that work the best and do not take up so much tank volume .8% are these ones - http://www.rittenhouse.ca/asp/Product.asp?PG=2498

    The Surge Buster System is designed to function very differently than the traditional baffle balls. The Surge Buster system removes virtually all the directional surge from a tank, both front to rear and side to side. This also prevents a standing wave from forming by converting the directional momentum to a series of eddies and swirls throughout the tank. While creating this effect, virtually no directional surge can be produced. A result of this action; it has created an agitation system within the tank to help keep your product in suspension.

    For a 200 gallon tank you would require 7 surge busters.

    Turf Dawg, I'm sorry, we use Surge Buster's NOT Baffle Balls. I'm sure they work but how well vs. Surge Buster's I don't know. The Surge Buster's stopped almost all of the sloshing in our 300 gallon liquid salt tank which was not good for the trucks drivetrain. All we felt was a little thump when we came to a stop.
