Any help, with images or videos or anything basically would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Things will go much faster with the use of large rubbermaid tub,You can wash much more at one time.
I normally wash around half of 50 lb bag by dumping it into a large tub and using garden hose to rinse it while sifting it repeatedly with my hand.
I then pour the water from the tub and repeat several times.
The more you wash, the less clouding and tanks will usually clear within a few hours
