You need to turn the pump on at the control panel in order to pressurize your water lines. This will solve the water part of the problem. While your at the control panel, if your not familiar with how to energize the circuit to check your tank levels, you been to put pressure with your finger on the elongated oval to find out what your tank levels are. The LEDs will light up showing your levels.
I'm sorry if i'm telling you something you may already know, but I am trying to be helpful. From what I have read so far it seems you may not be familiar with how some of these systems work. We all started at some point in time.
Let us know how you are doing.
