    Vacuuming up mini-pebbles?

    I have a new pool, about five months since water fill. I have vacuumed it about every three weeks, and I still am picking up some mini-pebbles and glass beads from my plaster. Is this normal? I thought that it would have stopped eventually once all the loose pebbles were picked up. I had installed the stonescapes mini-pebble if that makes any difference. Thanks!

    Our Polaris 280 was picking up pebble sheen pebbles after a full year after the resurface. Not a whole lot of them but still.

    I'm still picking up glass beads and pebbles in my Dolphin after about 4 months.
