    Eric, you drawing will work fine. What year and model do you have? Do you have the timers or is this a mod on an older model.

    Its very easy to hear by the tone of the pumps whether they are pumping water or not. I think it would look cool to look like a fire boat while draining but you can easily tell by the whining of the pump thats its done pumping or its not pumping for some reason. A lower tone lets you know water is flowing

    It's old like me, an '02 LSV -- picked it up earlier this year real cheap as a "hold over" til I found another Natique or X-Star -- but fell in love with the way it rides and have been fixing some of the little things, new stereo, adding Perfect Pass, second battery with a charging system, new bimini, tower lights...

    Here's the revised drawing;
    1. added a third check valve at the vent
    2. fixed the direction of my check valve symbols as I had them backwards earlier

    Why do you need Check valve #1? Or even the ballast dump?!?

    Nevermind, you want to be able to see/hear the water to know when to shut off...

    A lot of our customers elect to install reversible pump systems as you've outlined, to provide visual and audible indications when the system is draining. You can save a little bit of money by using 3/4" components for the vent connection, although then your drain and vent thru-hulls will be different sizes (unless you use a common size fitting).

    We have diagrams for this system and other popular layouts in our resources section.

    I hope so!! I bought all that stuff from you guys (Great Service by the way!) and I am going to start the install next week.

    Already carved up the area behind the throttle lever to install the new pump switches so I can get to them! I will post some pics later.

    Not much to look at yet;

    Before the switches were in a horrible location, never did get used to them, never could remember which was what and what was on or off as I couldn't see them.

    This is where the new ballast switches are including a new switch for the third X-Over reversible pump between the back two bags. Got two more future switch spaces, probably going to add some docking lights on one of them.

    Default Re: Reversible Pumps and check valves?

    Where did you get the plate and switches from?
