As for running from the tank initially, I was thinking more of being at a draft side not the firescene. When arriving at the draft sire, we make the suction connections then engage the pump. No water or very little comes out of the pump when the caps removed as long as the tank to pump is closed an is tight.
Nevertheless, I was merely pointing out that this may be one reason why the relay valve directions would have you make the connections before spinning the pump, as other reasons seem to be eluding us, likely due to our being far better prepared for a host of pump revolutions, than years past.
