Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

What does the inlet valve on your livewell look like?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
the boat has 2o hrs on it...all is new...the inlet valve is the open or closed valve in the bilge compatment right?
Expert:  Charles replied 7 months ago.

I was referring to the point to where the water enters the livewell. On some of the older models there was a valve in the inlet to control how fast the livewell filled. If it is the type that is not adjustable, make sure that the overflow tubing is free and clear. With the boat having only 20 Hrs on it, something may have partially clogged the overflow hose.
