ballast does not work on an early 2000s xstar. Where is the best place to begin looking for the problem?

1. Engine off, have someone flip the switch for each pump and listen for the pump running.
2. Pump runs, check the impellers, anything old, burnt, black or yellow change to green impellers.
3. No pump noise when switched, check the breakers. Not sure where they are on an Xstar.

thank you for the help. Any idea on how much the pumps cost?

Are you sure you need a complete pump? Do they make noise when you turn them on? Don't run them for very long while dry. Just long enough so you can hear them.

ALSO!!

Is there a through hull shut off valve on your boat? Make sure it's in the open position while in the water.
