2001 X STAR filling question

I have a 2001 X Star. I have got about half a dozen small yellow pumps for the ballast system witch consist of two 750 lbs in the rear lockers, center ballast and then the integrated bow sack under the seats. Everything was exactly like this when I bought the boat last year. I am always running into issues with the pumps getting what seems like "air locked" when trying to fill them. I have never had any issues with emptying them though. I have considered upgrading all the fill pumps with the Tsunami 1200 GPH pumps. Any one else run into the same type of problems?
I am not in a huge rush as I am waiting for my new motor to get built so I can get it back on the water soon!
Thanks in advance!
