Yep. Disconnecting the inlet to the pump and allowing water to drain until air is gone will get rid of the slug.

Thanks to all for your responses. I will go back to my storage facility and try to get it working. Just do not want to leave the motor running too long-might burn up. Thinking of buying an extra motor just in case I have any other problems as a backup. Thanks again!!

I had the same problem with.mine after "blowing " the system out. I only use a little antifreeze to protect the pump. I had to put the winterize section of hose in a bucket, above the level of the pump and let it run for a couple minutes. Then presto, I had water in the pump and I could switch back to drawing from the tank.

Worth checking -

pump in "normal" mode, not winterize
low point drains closed
hot water tank drain closed
hot water tank pressure valve closed
hot water tank valves in normal operation mode, not bypass
filter canister properly connected
exterior hose or sprayer disconnected or closed off
exterior sink faucets closed
