On the 05 zx skeeters, or around that year model, I don't know why I haven't noticed before but I have 2 livewell pump outs on the back of the boat. I always see people pumping their live wells out and never knew I could. So my question is how do I do it on my boat? The manual says to pull the head of the pump out/aerator and use the recirc pump but I don't guess I know what that is. Can anyone with a year model boat close to mine tell me where that is and how to use it. Would really help filling my weigh in bag at the tournaments

Inside the front edge of the livewell should be a red (on current models) nozzle, it will be spraying water when you have your recirc pump on. Pull it out and water is diverted to pump out.

On my 2005 the spray nozzle is white. Just like David said, Pull it forward to engage. Also make sure your recirc is on manual

I had to upgrade my pumps to get a stream to shoot far enough to clear the top cap.

Also don't forget to push it back in or you will think you have a boat leak and your pump will keep coming on and draining your live well and kill your catch which you will get penalized with at weigh in. LOL. wonder how many that has happened to?
