I put a dry, empty water bottle in the canister and when I started pumping in the pink stuff, the pressure collapsed the bottle, forcing the air out of the tightened bottle cap. Guess I'll find something a little more substantial next year. I think I let the other piece go with the 23SS when I sold it.
The good news is - thanks to ependydad and FR's anti-freeze filler, the whole procedure took about 10 minutes. I think I waited longer for my son to get home from work than it took to do the procedure.
Oh, and yeah, I stood to the side when I opened the city water valve. It does have some pressure, doesn't it?
