All three ballast pumps are reversible on my X-10. On empty, they simply return the water to the manifold located on the back inside bulkhead of the boat. (This is the same manifold that supplies water from the bottom thru-hull outlet).If you will look, there is a one-way check valve located just downstream from the thru-hll intake fitting before the manifold. So, when the water is sent back to the manifold when you empty the tanks, the water is then sent out the two sides of the manifold and directed to both thru hull fittings located on each side of the boat above the water line. The check valve prevents the returning water from being emptied out the bottom thru-hull fitting. Hope that helps.
