Yes let us know how well the green ones perform.

The yellow ones for my KGB tank take forever to fill/empty, so I went back to the black one just for that pump/tank. I'd love to try the green ones.

Also, what did you use to polish your pumps with?

Jim -

Here is the link that talks about the green impellers and how they may help the siphoning (spelling???) effect.

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...R-JABSCO+GREEN

Why would the MTS require a different impeller compared to the KGB system?

I used my dremmel and a polishing kits I got from Lowes for $12. Worked like a charm.

Hi 205, any update on whether the green ones work any better than the yellow ones?

Here is the scoop. The green ones will stop Global Warming, just ask Al Gore.

Have not had the boat out yet. Been traveling for work for the past 3 out of 4 weeks. Also, I live in Seattle - summer doesn't start until after July 4th around here. Hope to go out next weekend. I'm out of town again this upcoming week but guess what, it's suppose to rain all week. Big surprise.
