Plastic cup with your hand over the opening slowly push underwater then proceed to dump! Big gulp cups work well.

make sure you rinse it first or your water will be cloudy for a few days

it is not the "sand storm" you should concern, it would be the mini cycle that created by introducing new sand to it.
