use a strong pump and pressurise the system to get the air out,
take in to account that higher pressure could cause leaks or damage,

I just looked at a review and indeed that seems to be the case - The only suggestion I can offer is cut the tubing, put a barbed T in it on the return side, with a hose and valve. And how did the air get in it in the first place, and how can you tell? The review complained they didn't have clear tubes on it.
