Good tricks.
Another is to repeatedly squeeze the upper radiator hose while engine is running and you should feel pressure.
My favorite trick is to go drive up and down steep mountain roads to get rid of air pockets...ofcourse, this works much better in CO than FL.

Did you actually see the coolant sensor break? Or it just quit working? Maybe worth looking at the pigtail connection closer.

Also, did you get the serpentine belt wrapped properly around the pulleys. Back when I used to trust my memory, I reinstalled the serp belt only to realize after that I installed it wrong around a couple pulleys.

Last thought, did you do anything with your thermostat during your waterpump replacement?
