    You better start with your boat and model year. Lots of years have different systems. If you have a GIII sprinkler valve system you need to look for the manifold with the 3 valves that open to fill the 3 bags. It looks like this:

    You can take the valves apart and clean them out. They are very simple. You can buy replacements at Home Depot for about $15. Take pics, ask questions. Don't be afraid. This is very simple stuff even for the non-mechanically inclined. It's just a water pump and a valve that opens. If the valve is sticky it stays open and fills all the time. You want the valve set to closed so it only opens when energized. You'll be fine.

    There is a small switch on the valve that will manually open it. If this is switched open then it doesn't matter what the ballast toggle position is, it will fill all the time while moving.

    Ok, sorry I have a 2008 LSV with a center and rear ballasts. I have moved the switches on the valves to open and closed and it doesn't change - water continues to fill when at speed or when I fill rear bags. So I assume I can take off the 8 or so screws on the front of the valve but then what-how do I clean it or will it be self explanatory once I open it? Then based on comment can i just get a new value at Home Depot and plug and play? Thanks again. This is a new boat for me (1 month) and love it but I have a lot to learn.

    I tried to clean them before and when I put it back together none of them worked. At like $15 each I would just go to Home Depot and buy a new one. That's what I did for all three

    If you have a sprinkler supplier in town I'd go to this valve. It's much more reliable and lets a little more water through when open. I only have 2 sprinkler valves left in my system (surf bag uses a Moombadaze 2 pump system with check valves instead). One is an original the other is one of these-- works great!

    Only a few bucks more but well worth it.

    Thanks everyone! I was able to get the valve at Lowes and managed to replace it myself. The pictures and links everyone provided really helped! Thanks again.
