Water clarifier issue

I set up a third tank to run over the weekend so I could hopefully populate it next week sometime. I got some Turface and despite repeated washings had some cloudiness issues. Nothing unexpected, but I am the impatient type. I remembered someone giving me a brand new bottle of clarifier so I decided "what the heck" and put the recommended dose into the tank. It is Kent Marine Pro-Clear. One would think the "marine" part of the name would have tipped me off... not so. I was reading the bottle last night and it says "do not use in freshwater". Well, too late for that! It contains de-ionized water and polyelectrolytes. I am going to just drain the water off and start with fresh RO, but do I need to rewash the substrate? Should I toss ALL of the filter media? Thanks!
