I have a question about the amount of ballast pumps in the Xstar.
We have 2 Xstars en we both have 1 pump unused?

Both with the upgrade ballast.

We have 6 pumps that are used;

2 rear tank.
2 rear bag.
1 center tank.
1 front bags.

under the garbage bucket, are 2 pumps above eachother, however only one works.
Does someone know what the are pump is for?

Gr, Tim

Not familiar with the newer boats, but could the other pump be for a shower or wash down?

I am in the same boat...

I just had 7 impellers replaced on mine. Made a HUGE difference! But my shop ran into the same question... What does the 7th pump do?

We know for sure there are 2 pumps for each of the 3 hard tanks/PNP system.

3 pumps for 3 hard tanks.
3 pumps for 4 fatsacks.

Hard to believe they would put another Jabsco pump in the boat if it wasn't optioned with a wash down... But they do tend to wire the boats for every possible option, so I guess its not that hard to believe.

However the pumps look the same and are all the same size... I need more info.

Yes, it is exactly the same pump, same diameter hoses are connected.

My boat is equipped with the wash down, this pump is fitted under the glove department and it a more plastic kind of pump.

My 7th pump is not a wash down. It is exactly like the other pumps and doesn't have the plastic top that is found on the wash down pumps.

I believe 2 pumps fill the center tank

XStar uses 2 pumps for the front hard tank. With gen2, an XStar has 7 pumps.
