Probably just a tileable alpha texture and use the same or similar texture as bump could be enough..

He tried opacity but couldn't get a decent "depth" effect.

If it "kills" the pc make one small section, instance it and use proxys.

Use opacity and disp for the depth.
Or make a small square and instance tile it.
Or use a proxy.
