Hey check out my video, it will give you an idea of how long it will take

It is normal to have it cloudy for up to a few days. But if it lasts longer, or even if you want it to go away, just do a water change. Basically you are using the tank and filter to finish rinsing the sand.
But when you are refilling it do it gently or else you will stir up the sand again, lol
yeah the sand takes about 3 days to fully settle. I turned my filter back on on the 3rd day.
i dunno about days, i wash the bejesus out of mine and it usualy is clear by the next morning, if that.
