Thank you Ross. Your weather sounds like we had in summer.  And thanks 
about mentioning the mask.  Have not been back to the selling lot where 
I gotthis from to investigate what their bulk lot is like, but will when 
the weather improves.  Here it is wet, wet, wet.

Now if I line a plastic washing basket with something open weave, fill 
it with pumice and turn the hose on it, that should do it quicker.  And 
yes, it would go into the garden, wouldn't want to fill the rainwater 
drain with it.
