Trying to sanitize the water system

Could use some help. The bleach solution is in the fresh water tank, I am disconnected from city water. Iíve turned the pump on but water is not flowing to the sinks. This is my first time sanitizing so Iíve just been following the directions provided in this forum. To confirm, are the valves set correctly ? Any thoughts what I might be doing wrong?

That is correct for bypassing your water heater, but did you move any other valves or drains?
Is your pump running (turned on)?

Would help to know what type of rig you are trying to sanitize and if you have a wet bay with controls

Sorry - Thor Axis 24.1. I think I have it figured out through trial and error but not sure I understand. The configuration of the low point drains under the bed now is

Feed Valve open, low point drain closed, cold water open, hot water open.

Nothing's draining. Water is coming from the faucets, pump is running. So I guess all is good.

Thanks for being there!

Now that you've got all of the cruddy" water in your black and gray tanks: it's yime to give each of them a couple of "breath mints"; and drain them out.
