just don't run the engine too long because plain water doesn't have the lubricant for the pump.

having the heat on full blast does nothing besides letting you know some water has made it to the heater core. your climate control knobs DO NOT affect the flow to the heater core.
Nailed it and good info. In the past I have used the garden hose to flush the system without any problems.
