Rear Ballast Hard Tank Problems


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 2003 Malibu Wakesetter 23xti. This weekend on the lake I went to fill my rear ballast up and after 15-20 seconds of pumping the water started coming out of the drain bilge in the rear. I then switched the tanks to drain and sure enough it drained about 3-5 gallons. Tried it again same results. I have searched all over the web and haven’t had any success. Anybody have any suggestions on what the issue may be? Thanks!!

I would think the pump is not connected correctly to the hard tank. The pump is just dumping water in the bilge. Take a look at the connections and make sure they are secure. If that’s not the problem then put the boat in the water and watch the pumps. You could use a fake a lake device if you want to keep boat on trailer.
