    dirt from jets when set on filter and even on waste

    Hi everyone,
    I am hoping this forum could help me out with my pool. This year seems to be the year trouble spots starting to show up.
    What could be the culprit if ​I am vacuuming with setting on filter and even on waste and dirt coming through the jets onto the pool water.

    There should be no water coming from return jets when vacuuming to waste.
