Welcome to them forum. What is your exact model and some of these guys on here can give you step by step depending on that. Do you have an owners manual also? It is a very simple process...

Very nice! I have never heard of (or done) the city water valve press. It's never broken but I'll start doing it now.

I notice he didn't open the low water line drains but presumably pumped all the water through the system and didn't discuss the option of air blowing out the lines (which I don't usually bother with).

Good basic run through tho.

By blowing 30 psi air through the city water first, and bypassing the water heater, I found that when I opened every tap and toilet until air ran through, that I had very little water (only a dribble) when I later opened the low point drains. I closed them back up, and ran the pink through the pump using the equipped suction hose, and ran pink through every tap. I'm confident the air blown through the city inlet removed any water from that device. After making sure I had some through each P-trap, and into empty gray and black tanks, I then ran the level in the toilet bowl up a few inches, to compensate for any evaporation. You want to keep that seal wet!
