Tandem pump users

When changing pump tonight, took out cartridge before that step told me to on pump change cycle…is that ok? Will pump work ok?
Also trying steel cannula…the needle really punctured skin with almost like a ‘pop’ or click feel? Didn’t go in smoothly, is that ok? Is that a bad site/affect delivery?

I’ve made that mistake a couple times and it didn’t seem to hurt the pump, but I try to do it in the order they say.

@sweetgal88 I have also done that, and have not noticed and problems. Regarding the steel sets… Either pinch an inch and insert in the fold, or place it and give the plastic above the cannula a light tap. The tap will force the needle through the skin with minimal fuss.
