heres what i suggest, fill and bleed your system with a temp rez, like cap the Tline, make sure its airtight, and unhook the inlet of the pump, submerge that and the tube in the water, run it till all bubles are out, then stick the tube on the inlet underwater while running, then fill the bleed line, and your set

what kind of water soultion should i use?
Distilled water and water wetter or purple ice or if you don't have these, maybe 5% - 10% of antifreeze for corrosion protection, or you could just run straight water.

for running strait water, stick something in to kill bacteria, like rubbing alcohol or something liek that, or some dehumidifier stuff, because you dont want nasties growing

if you use antifreeze forget the alcohol, and only use 5% antifreeze, so you can almost not see it
