'18 T22 factory ballast not filling

Recommended Posts

So my starboard hard tank isn't filling at all anymore, pump makes a higher pitched sound like if you cover the inlet on a vacuum.

I'm assuming there's a clog somewhere in there where do I need to look and how?  Is the intake the holes by the center drain (there are 2 holes there but I think those would be for mid ship and bow ballast I don't recall seeing other intakes but I wasn't looking for them either.

Thanks for any help

There are two fill holes towards the middle/front for the the center tank and bow (pnp) and two in the back for the port and starboard tanks.  I had the same problem with my port ballast but I just had to reverse the flow for a few seconds and it worked out whatever vacuum it had created.

No such luck for me I'm going to take a look under since my lift gets well out of the water before I go out today and got some direction on how to access the fill pump on the axis forum

The fill pump is next to the V- drive.  Close the valve under it and unscrew the blue ring.  Then wiggle the whole motor assembly out and check for weeds.

The rear inlets are next to the vdrive. Check the shut off valves connected to the thru Hull?

Pumps on each side of the v-drive are both fill pumps, one for each side.  They both should have a 3/4" inlet (connected to shutoff valve and thru hull) and 1" output to fill the tank/bag on that side of the boat.
