I always open a bleeder screw or the solenoid when I turn the water back on after installing or repairing a valve. You'll want to get the air out of the valve using the bleeder screw at some point.

after putting in new diaphragm do you have to wait for the system to pressurize up or should it work right away

If you're turning on the valve manually at the valve itself then the problem is the diaphragm. I'd change the diaphragm or change the valve depending on the model valve.
