    The debris in the middle of the pool

    Our round pool regularly deposits debris (leaves, pollen, etc.) in the bottom, center, where there is little circulation and little hope of returning to skimmer. We have a ladybug cleaner, but thanks to mole depressions around one edge of the pool, and some liner wrinkles, she doesn't maneuver well. Any suggestions?

    I get in and run in circles for a bit, so the resulting whirlpool effect takes all the debris to the center. Then pole skimmer.

    This is a good thing. Your pump n filter are working just fine.
