If installing the Jump Jets in a gravel bed what sort of gravel can I use?

It is possible to get clean decorative gravel/ pebbles from DIY stores or some of the web based outlets this is normally clean and ready to use. However if you are using gravel from a builders merchants/depot then this contains an amazing amount of fine sand/silt and general debris it will need washing through several times and if possible putting through a garden sieve.
