So as I sharpen over my little sink base I had a thought. With some stones I can go from clean water to dirty water by the time I am done lapping them, add in a few dozen hand sharpenings and BAM! You have a 1/4 inch of sediment in the bottom of the sink by then end of the week.
I usually drain, clean, and refill about once sometime twice a week but what if I could somehow filter the water daily to keep the merky water less merky between the weekly change?
I was thinking some sort of recirculating pump but having a hard time finding one that will work with the small sink I use. Ideally it would have a hose in and hose out of about 1/2 inch dia with a easily rinsed filter.

I'm not sure how much of the "muck" comes from the "murk" (likely only the tiniest of particles) so it might not be worth spending the $30-50 for something that you can run continuously (at least during sharpening hours) compared to just changing out the water more often.
