Welcome to the forum
This is how I clean my canisters. I take off the top and place that on a bucket lid so that it collects any water that drips down. I take the filter body to the sink, and I have a small bucket with me. As I take each media basket out, I clean it in the sink and then place it in the bucket. 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.
If your tank is new then you should not use tap water. However, its not a problem with a mature tank.
