Ballast tanks are compartments on a vessel that hold sea water in order to balance the ship and ensure its stability. Older vessels used to use stone or iron to provide balance, however this has now been replaced by seawater as it can more easily be adjusted and is readily available. Our Ballast Pump Reverse Polarity Switch Kit is designed to efficiently transfer vast amounts of sea water into the marine vessels’ ballast tanks or to empty if necessary i.e. when entering more shallow waters.
