I have the green ballast impellers for the Jabsco Ballast Puppy pumps. I've got 3 seasons on mine (going into the 4th) with just about 300 hours on the boat. So far I have not replace mine but I suspect they possibly have lost some of their efficiency.

I'm curious how long they last and how often people replace them?

I just keep a spare on the boat. I haven't had to replace any of mine yet. I wouldn't replace them unless you are having a problem with one of them.

Has anyone used the new orange impellers yet?

I would say that as long as your fill times haven't increased significantly, there is no reason to change the implellers. Like JRW160 says, just keep a spare on hand.
