I can fill and empty the center ballast but when I drive the boat it fills on its own. Also... when I fill the left and right ballast without filling the center, some water gets into the center while those two are filling.

I checked those small black levers on the sprinkler pumps and they are all up so that can't be the issue.

What else could it be?

The levers may not work on the center solenoid , Or you may have to take it aprt and see if any debris is stuck in there keeping it open. i think eight or ten screws and it comes apart.

I had some of the same symptoms you had, and found no debris but what I did find was alge growing in there. I cleaned them out with some bleach water and they work good as new.
