Source for Fastfill ballast impellers?

Anyone source or replace the impellers for the 2018+ quickfill ballast system?

Looking to see if I can get the impellers someplace other than the dealer, but not having much luck finding them.

they look like the standard orange Johson pump impellers - only twice as long. # on them is 08-849P-2

Thanks moose, they do look exactly like that - which are the standard Jabsco/Johnson impellers. I had some of those impellers and was going to replace mine, but it wasn't until I pulled them out of the housing that I realized they are about twice as deep...which explains how the fastfill ballast moves so much water so fast.

I have 8 pumps - I think the dealer wants like $50 per impeller - $400 per season on impellers just seems nuts... and these ones have not even made it a season yet and are looking a little beat up.

Was just looking for these, and found them here...

Trying to confirm, thinking there are 5 of these on an X22?

Those are the correct ones for the fast fill pumps. I ordered an extra set a couple months ago.

You could probably get 2 or 3 seasons out of your impellers depending on how many hours you put on the boat per season.

The problem is that the fastfill pump housings are a little different than the ballast puppies. The puppies just have a hole where the water enters and exits the pump, but the fastfill pumps have what I would call a grate or some kind of support bracing cast into the hole- the impeller rides over the grate and it really chews up the impeller...it actually kind of cuts it and I have also experienced the impeller getting stuck on that grate and then it won't spin.

In that case I would probably try to sand polish the grate to remove edges. 2000 grit water sand paper would do the trick.
