    [QUOTE=Pogueld;863346]What kind of debris and are you worrying about it getting into your filter?

    Cement dirt rocks due to preparation of the soil for pavers to be installed.
    In ground pool owner sand bottom. Measurements of pool 16 X 32. Recently installed a new liner, hayward super pump VS, Aqua Plus chlorination with salt and a solar heater. In process of installing pavers around pool have a diving board and steps with jets.

    Are they small enough to go through your skimmer basket?

    I'm in the middle of a return repair with the pavers around the skimmer being removed- sand & rocks all over the place
    Plus my paver guy just re-sanded the whole job @$%^&
    The Skimmer basket should get most of the big stuff & a sock will get most of the small stuff
