You will probably have to turn off the furnace and open the valve on its boiler to let the water out that way.

You cannot drain just one zone unless it has manually operated shutoff valves on both the outgoing and return pipes as well as a drain valve within the closed off section.


The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.

If you are clueless here the best thing is going to be a call to your local heating technician before you get in over your head.
Always ask to see your contractors license!
