Ballast Microbe Reset?

My port side ballast is not filling up, and my tech in the past when we thought it was an impeller suggested reseting the ballast microbe, somehow through flicking the switches on and off in a certain combination. Does anyone know how to do this, I called my dealer and all their technicians are busy or gone for the day. I'd really like to be able to get this tank full since this is the last bit of riding we're going to be doing for the season.

Thanks!

70+ views and not a single response? Really? This forum sucks.


It's not a timer issue anyways, impeller is out.

BTW a microbe is a microorganisms. At first I thought you had fungi controlled ballast.

You obviously can't do simple math considering this was posted well over 48 hours ago, on 10/7.

No attitude, just a fact.

as noted in my edit I was 3 sheets to the wind. You need to list what kind of boat, what kind of system, and leave the attitude at the door.

Hahah, this is going to be good. Maybe try to explain your problem and maybe you will get a non sarcastic answer. But you attitude is all wrong so you probably already blew it. Good luck, and call your dealer. This is by far the best MC forum there is.

After reading all of your 20 post on this site I'm starting to think the issue isn't with the forum or it's members.

Just a heads up buddy, most of these people have a boat and a family too. They might have been out using those boats.

Of the 70 that viewed your thread it's possible they don't have the answer.

Here's a tip: Don't bash the forums and the people that use it when you are looking for their help. Hell, the people with the information might of had you on their ignore list from 09.
