While I personally have not done this, some have suggested partial cooking of the cat litter to make it less messy.
I think you'll find that the Tesco Premium Cat litter and the other pink/brown hard cat litters (Sophisticat Pink etc.) are not messy at all, they've already been baked ! I simply put some in a kitchen sieve and sprayed water through it. Afterwards there was very little clouding and the small amount that I did get cleared within hours 8) Now the water stays crystal clear
Do check how it works with your water tho, I've not read any other example of my own experience with Tesco Premium Cat Litter, but it's not impossible soaking the cat litter for a week or so definitely helped to settle water parameters in the tank more quickly
ETA. I completely forgot, I found that the Cat Litter will stick to my Algae Magnets - the back of them ! So I tried it in a bag of DRY cat litter and the same happened very strange The magnet didn't stick to the bag tho Could it be the iron in it?
