After removing and cleaning the last media basket, I rinse out the filter body. Then I put everything back in. Now, I prefer to use a water pitcher and manually fill up the filter. Then I put the filter head back on, clamp it down (over a bucket lid to catch overflow), put it back in place, reattach the hoses and I'm done.
