Hydro Oil Change

How do I go about changing ALL the fluid in the HYDRO system of my walk behind. Bought it about a month ago with white fluid. I know this means water has gotten into the system. How do I change it and what do I use?..

Thanks

The easiest way without removing hoses and risking leaks and possible contamination to the system is drain the tank and filter then re-fill with fresh oil. Do this two/three times until it stays clean, Then install a new filter.

But,
Block the rear tires off the ground and run the unit full forward to full reverse slowly 8/10 times between changes to bleed any air out of the system.
