This entire system does not work in Bedrock Edition, but it would work great if your base was on PC minecraft. It uses a minimal number of sponges for maximum effect, buy not letting the rest of the water flow back in to the emptied areas. For larger areas like that one, you will still want a lot of sponges and an active furnace.


Instead of starting at the top and going down layer by layer with sponges, I would start in the center an divide the floor into a grid of 3*3 block squares by placing doors in between your columns. Place sand on top of those doors, and then more doors on top again. You should have a grid of walls of doors and sand reaching from the ocean floor to the surface, separating 3*3 block columns of water. (Note that you don't need to have your entire grid of walls built ahead of time. You can empty the center with sponges and then tear down exterior walls to reclaim materials and expand)

After you have divided up an area, go to the top of a flooded column and place a sponge in the center of the column on the third layer from the top of the water (you'll need a support block to get it in the middle). Then break the wet sponge and support block and go lower. Place another sponge further down the column and repeat. Once you've reached the bottom, you can destroy the any interior walls by breaking the one block at the base and putting a torch there to break all of the falling sand.

Alternitively, if you have plenty of iron, slime, and/or redstone and don't mind a complete lack of exterior walls, you could build a M.O.S.E.S. to clear out the water. (link to demonstration and instructions)

You're welcome! I just finished using this technique to clear all of the water out of a biodome lab base on a survival server.

When you're playing 1.13 the most efficient way to remove it would be making the frame-work first (The giant circle. Then after that removing the water layer by layer with sponge would be the quickest way. Just remember a few furnaces to re-heat the sponge once it's used :p
