View Full Version : X Star Additional Ballast Draining Problem

05-18-2013, 10:23 AM
I am sure that people are sick of seeing this type of post, but I need some good solutions. I run 1100s in rear lockers and wedges up front. All on overflow.

Bags drain out during riding. I know that the impellars are not water tight. so >4000lbs of water will have tendency to push through them.

Where and what type of valves have peopled installed to get a consistent wake?

1100s in the back? yikes, hope you have the big engine.

try the green impellers in the ballast pumps.

never had a problem with mine draining when running the greens. your 2009 will have yellow impellers, simple replacement

so the green ones are water tight? do you run 1100s?

I've got a custom 1400 lb surf sac that never self drains.

What year is the boat and how old are your impellers?
