Ballast pump...what kind?


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody! I'm sure somebody here has this answer....I don't have my boat near me right now and the information I probably need to figure this out is inside my boat. I have an 06 Wakesetter VLX and my front ballast pump just quit working to pump the water in. It works to pump out but not in. I need to order a new one but don't know what kind/model it is. Can anybody tell me what I'm looking for and where I can get it? Thanks!

When ordering your new pump, remember you just need the pump insert and not the whole pump and housing. This will save you a few dollers. Do you have the fiberglass bow partician or the carpeted one? This will let us know if your pump re and re will be easy or very challenging.

I have a carpeted one....I haven't had a chance to look at where it even is. I also believe I have another one on the way out. They have had their use for sure!

Your lucky. If you have the carpeted partician you just have to remove two screws and slide out the panel. Change your pump and your off. Mine was a lot more time comsuming. Here is the link to Bakes where you can purchase the pump with out the housing. Good Luck

Thanks a lot! Very helpful....I've been lucky that this has been the only thing that went out on my bu and I ordered it new, now looking at 415 hrs of hard wakeboarding use with extra ballast and all. Love my VLX!!
