Thank you. I will probably start adding water tomorrow, and then finish with that on Tuesday. On Tuesday, I should have all of my equipment going.

How would you all recommend rinsing sand? I bought some yesterday. I will probably need more eventually though.

All I did was put the sand in a drum, added RO water, and stirred with my hands. Then emptied the water. Then added more water, stirred again...repeat until the water wasn't cloudy anymore.

I'm sure there's a better way, but that worked for me.

I did mine about 20lbs at a time in 5g bucket. Kept stirring it up until it ran clear. repeat.
