    2. Open the vent valve which is on the discharge line before the discharge valve of the centrifugal pump which causes all air to move out of the casing and filled with the pumping fluid only.
    3. When some quantity of the fluid comes out from the vent valve close the valve.
    4. Now open the bypass valve of the discharge valve which is near or side of the discharge valve on the discharge line.
    5. Now start the pump and let it attain its capacity in the pressure gauge on the discharge line.
