Ballast pump replacement?
I pulled my pump when I winterized the boat and I'd like to get a new one. The current one is a Rule Hi-Flow livewell pump which was the stock pump that came with my boat when I bought it. I was wondering what folks were running and suggest I look into and where I can look on the internet for a new pump?
Thanks!2008 Supra 21V-Currently For Sale

If your ballast system is the single ballast pump with the 3 electric sprinkler valves, then most gut the system to do away with those sprinkler valves and them give each sac its own dedicated fill pump and plumbing. This can be done with aerator or reversible impeller, which would also eliminate the drain pumps.

CNS is the the pump dead? I think your pump is 1100 gph
they don't make that one anymore, you could replace it with this tournament rule pump but pretty spendy at 160.00
the cheaper option would be the tsunami 1200A Day at the Lake...Priceless

The pump is not dead. It's 6 yrs. old, just thought I'd replace it. Thought I'd also like more flow out of it. Perhaps I am jumping the gun here and I don't need to do this at this time. Though I will look at those other pumps for reference. Thanks guys.2008 Supra 21V-Currently For Sale

if the pump still functions, id run it until the time is right to reconfigure the entire fill system.

I have heard that if you replace that pump with a reversible pump you will get better flow. You might want to talk to wakemakers on that though. I hear that even though you have less GPM on the Johnson / Jabsco the head pressure is much better and will push through the sprinkler heads better. Even though the existing pump is high flow there is no pressure and the flow is minimal once it gets to the bags. Just what I have heard.
If you replace it with a Johnson your part way there if you decide to go with the elaborate system many of us have decided to invest in.
