Using Turkey Baster To Prime The Pump

Step 6 - Priming The Water Pump:

Sometimes when you run a water pump dry, from draining the water tanks, it can become hard for the pump to create a new prime and begin sucking fluids again.

An easy way to avoid this problem is to pre-prime the water pump using a turkey baster. Not all pumps will require this trick and if yours won't prime this will do the trick.
