Ballast Pump Timers

Can anyone shed light on the timer fuction of the ballast pumps? I have a '08 x-2... my ballast pumps do not seem to turn off when filling the tanks. They keep pumping after the tanks have filled and I can see water spewing out from the thru hull fittings. Same happens on emptying the tanks. I can hear the pumps running even after the tanks have emptied. Is this normal? I'm concerned that I might burn out the pumps and destroy the impellers especially on the empty cycle.

Deon, try disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes and that might reset your timers. It worked on my 07 X2 when I had it.

Will give it a try for sure. I disconnected the batteries last weekend so I should be able to test the next time I take it out.

This post covers how to change the run time on them. I think the 2007 timers maxed out at 5 or 6 minutes and 2008 and up the timers max out at 20min.

My boat doesn't have timers. I just run them until I hear the sound change. If you have the green impellers, they can be run dry for a while before it does any damage.
