  • Need Advice: broken ballast check valve

    One of my check valves is cracked and leaking into engine compartment bilge. I believe its the check valve on the bag fill side of the ballast manifold.

    Is there a better solution than just replacing that check valve with a new one?

    If there's not a better solution, where's the best place to get one?

    Thanks!

    Short or replumbing, you will likely need to retain a check valve. I would go with an actual marine check valve as opposed to those irrigation valves found at hardware stores.

      I'm surprised those PVC check valves have lasted this long.

      Will these work? http://www.wakemakers.com/anti-siphon-check-valves

        I love wakemakers products, expect for there check valves. I had to replace all 6 valves in the first season. I picked up new check valves at Lowe's for a quick fix two seasons ago and haven't had any problems.

          Replaced mine three years ago with check valves from a local irrigation supply house - same thing that came stock, 1/3 the price, and still working just fine!
