Getting ready for my new filter install

Bank holiday weekend is nearly upon us!
Going to set up my new canister filter.
Could I soak some media from the new filter in some tank water over the next few days to get a head start?
Would this even work?

Thanks all.

It will get the new media wet, can you take some of your biological media out of an existing fully-cycled tank and put it in the new filter?

Yes I can but not in advance as i am going from small internal to large external.
I will use some of the filter start bacteria in a bottle to hopefully boost the count up a bit??
Thank you!
