So I am going to go camping up at Lopez Lake ( I frequent lake Piru which does mussel inspections and I have a cable, but Lopez does not accept their cable. So beyond the normal hull/standing water visual inspection and hot water bath, they require internal ballast de-contamination. I spoke to the ranger and he said it entails filling the bags/tanks with 3oz of bleach for every gallon of water.

Here is my problem, I have a Sanger V215 with factory ballast (front 500 bag and two 250 rear tanks). I thought this would be easy, fill a container with water, hook hose up to thur-hull intakes, other end of short hose in the container of water, then turn on the ballast pump and fill as if it were sitting in water. No. I couldn't get the pumps to pull water, so i used my garden hose and turned it on connected to the other hose to push water and hopefully prime it, but no go.

Any suggestions, I thought for sure my way would have worked. I do not want to undo my hoses inside because they are sealed from the factory and would have to reseal them on site and will have less than 24hrs before we are on the water. I really want to bring the boat, but if I cant figure this out then it will not be accompanying me and I will be bored
