First time water fill-up....

Need to make sure I know waht I am doing as I contemplate checking the water lines on the new Bambi. I see lots of by-pass valves and want to make I get them all!!

I closed the low point valves in the rear and closed the hot water heater by-pass under the bed.

I am looking for the low point by-pass in the front. I see one, and think I see the other. I guess my question is, is there a valve into or out of the water pump? I don't think so....

Okay, with the by-pass valves closed, connect to city water. Open hot water faucets one at a time until steady stream. Than open cold water faucets until steady stream. Bingo?!

What did I miss?

Thanks!

Check water heater drain and pressure valve too! also if it has a bypass for winterising put that in correct position also.

Pressure valve? Do you mean the in-line pressure valve? What am I checking it for?

What bypass for winterising? Hot water heater? Got that.

Water heater drain? Will have to look more for that.

Thanks, Rcihard.

I mean the pressure relief valve on the water heater, make sure it is closed.
