You control the water from the garden hose with the on/off valve on the rinser. You connect the garden hose to the rinser. And, with the rinser valve 'off', insert the rinser into the tank through the drain plug hole where you removed the drain plug. You then turn the rinser water valve 'on' and move the rinser around in the tank (up, down, and rotate) with the water flowing. The water and sediment etc. in the tank then flow out.

Maybe a picture will help. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...bo0&ajaxhist=0

The flush device is small enough for the sediment to run out around it.
