Hello I just recently purchased an 05 b52 this is my first wakeboard boat. Today I went and tried to fill the ballast but they were not filling or getting any water. I could hear the impellers spinning but no water being sucked up. Is there any thing I may be missing or doing wrong?
Thanks

You may want to check your check valves above the pump before replacing impellers. If those aren't airtight, you may be pumping air down from the exit rather than water up from underneath.
Guy who owned my boat before me spent a lot of money on impellers when a $10 check valve would have done the trick.

Thank you for all the suggestions and comments. Just a little background this is my first inboard boat so new to this(and the steering) I also purchased the boat from a dealer ship 6 days ago with 190 hours. Called them up and they took it in and replacing them at no charge
Again thanks
