Hook a hose to the city water connection and open all the faucets, shower and toilet until it is no longer pink.

Don't forget to triple rinse the water tank if you put the pink there. If you have any pink in the water heater make sure you really rinse it as well. They do not flush well if not fully rinsed.

You need to sanitize system before use.

To sanitize:
Fill fresh water tank and then flush all lines till water runs clean.
Showers.
Taps.
Toilet.

Install 1/4 of bleach per 15 gallons of water in fw tank.
Flush all lines again till bleach can be smelled.
Let sit overnight.

Drain fresh water tank and refill with fresh water.
Flush all lines , taps , toilet and showers.

Un- bypass water heater, open ppressure relief valve and fill till air and water expells.
Remove water filter canister and install new filter"if applicable"
Remove water pump screen and clean "if applicable".
