    Default Ballast pump not pumping water...

    So first day on the lake and my left rear pump is't pumping. It's trying to pump but nothing is coming out. On the water I took off the output hose to see if it was something with my hoses...turned on the pump expecting to get water out and nothing...the other two pumps are working fine. Obviously something has clogged the intake but how can I check that? Obviously when we get back on the trailer I can look and see of there is something there but if I don't see anything what else could it be?

    Make sure your shut off valve is open , or sounds like you may need a new green impeller. Id also check to make sure there are no kinks in the tubing before or after the pump and clamps are tight.

    Valves are open....how can I determine if I need a new impeller? There aren't any kinks and all clamps are tight.

    Can you take the hose off the pump and blow through it? Without buying a spare impeller you could swap them between pumps.

    I didn't try the blowing method. I use all three pumps so Im not going to swap them. I'll just order a new one and hope it fixes the problem.

    If you have a W709 pump kit, fill the sac manually with some water, then try to empty using the pump. If the impeller is toast, it wont drain well either. Next, pull the pump cover off and inspect the impeller. When you last used the boat, did you leave the pumps in the drain position, or did you run them in the fill direction for about 5-10 seconds to flip the impellers? This prolongs the life.

    Definitely check your impeller. If you have the Jabsco Pump, it's one you can get from wakemakers, the 6303. You can also get these from West Marine, however they had to order them. I had to replace mine as it was doing the same. However, Mine would turn on, only make a faint sound for a few seconds, then shut off. Didn't do anything. It's not hard to replace these impellers either. If you want some help with it, let me know man! I got peoples in Canton!

    Word...appreciate that! I ordered some additional hose on Saturday and sent Wakemakers an email last night about adding the impellers to my order. I'm going to go ahead and replace all three. Hopefully that will do the trick!
