    Default Screwy Ballast

    Took the boat out yesterday for the first time this season, started filling the right side ballast bag up, once filled i switched to the left side. After a while I noticed the right side starting to bilge looked under the locker and it the right side bag looked like it was going to burst. Looked in the left locker and the bag was empty and dry.

    Determined that the left bag was somehow filling up the right bag. I couldn't get the left bag to get any water.

    Any ideas?

    Sprinkler valves are sticking. Just replace them. They are cheap enough. Better option than regular sprinkler valves is to replace them with these for better flow:

    Motorized Ball Valve- 1/2" Stainless Steel Electrical Ball Valve with Full Port, 9-24V AC/DC and 3 Wire Setup by U.S. Solid https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XD3W8QD..._yq55EbRYNRWFY

    Awesome, thank you!!

    The link you posted, those mount to the sprinkler manifold just like the sprinkler valves or will some other mods need to be made?

    I replaced my original Orbit valves with Irritrol 700B valves. No issues after many seasons of use.
