Where is everyone getting their replacement yellow impellers for the jabsco water puppy? Which one did you get? There are quite a few options, and was wondering what everyone else's experience has been. <BR>Thanks.

Get them from Mastercraft and I was quoted something like $12 per impeller when I called the local dealership here in AZ.

Our mastercraft dealer sells them over here in AZ. I think there about $20 a piece.

Got mine from the local MasterCraft dealer. They're a little pricey, but well worth it, especially when you forget to turn off a pump for a while...

Yes the solve the binding problem. But they also have less suction power/are slower than the black ones, something to consider if you have piggy backed on your stock system for additional bags. We currently run yellow ones for back but black for belly/bow.

I switched to the yellow impeller and ended up stripping the inner hub (it's some composite material as opposed to metal on the black versions) <BR>It worked great for a week anyway. <BR> <BR>So I'm back to the black one for now...

what about the blue ones?

I've got the blue ones in my boat. <BR>No problems and the fill speed seems to be about the same or even faster than the black ones because they work. <BR>The dealer I got mine through said the yellow ones are for solvents and the blue one for water.

I switched to the yellow this year and have had no problems. They work much better than the black ones. Those use to bind up on me all of the time. When I switched them out I also lubed them with a bunch of petroleum jelly. Haven't noticed much of a slow down in fill times.

One other thing to consider. The 1 way flow valves (not sure of the "correct" name) should be checked for backflow. <BR> <BR>I noticed that it was taking longer and longer to fill my ballast, and subsequently, I was frying my impellers. (2002 X-Star) <BR> <BR>It dawned on me to plug the water exit holes one day, and wham, the ballast started filling faster. <BR> <BR>I found out that all 3 of the plastic 1 way valves were shot, and letting air back into the system. <BR> <BR>After a $30 trip to Lowes, I had them replaced and the system is like new. <BR> <BR>Dave
