So I finally got a chance to change the impeller in my 22Ve and I was suprised by the damage it had. I've changed impellers before and they never looked like this. Is it possible that the person who installed this one had the blades bent going the wrong direction?

New to you boat? Looks like it hasn't been changed in a while or was started dry at some point?

Maybe some debris got in there at some point?

New to me last year. I bought it in May with 67 hrs and we have put another 50 hrs on last season. I've always changed the impeller every season on my previous boat. Still, it looks lime a lot of damage for so few hours.

the boat is a 2006 model and sat in storage for close to 5 years before we bought it.

I would probably have replaced it right after I got it knowing it sat.

Thats what they look like when they're old... The damage is the dry spin when started till the water gets to the impeller.. Change impeller every 2 seasons.. I pull them out during winterization also..

I changed mine out last year, it was 6 yrs old/120 hrs and still looked really good. I don't know about your boat, but on mine it was HUGE HUGE pain to change!! I got new grays when it was all said and done! I think I'm going to go every 3 years now since I have only been averaging 40hrs a season...

There is no thing as putting in wrong direction. They will turn over if needed.
