Not filling or emptying

One of my ballast tanks neither fills or empties. At first I assumed it was a bad pump or impeller, but I took the cover off and the impeller is in great condition and spins fine. If the sensor is correct, the tank is about half full but won't fill up or empty when the pump is working. The others all work fine (though maybe the stream is a little weak, so I think my boat could have prostrate problems).

Options I have considered:

Pump not priming - major leak in tubes for that pump? How would I find this? Other causes?

Blockage in tubes for that pump - how would I find this or teat for it?

Other ideas?

2011 X-25 with stock ballast system by the way.
