If the air is coming out too violently and fluid is being blown out of the bucket hold
the hose above the fluid until liquid starts to come out of it.
The fluid coming out the discharge hose can be extremely hot! Use
insulated gloves to hold the hose or clamp it securely to the s i d e o f
the bucket. Use eye protection.
If water was used to flush the system, the first fluid to come out of the system is
mostly water. Discard this "hung up" water in a separate bucket, then move the
discharge hose back to the "good" fluid bucket.
As the pump pulls fluid out of the bucket, keep pouring more in (Figure 5-31). Keep
the bucket at least half full at all times.
