Before I vacuum, I try to remove most big leaves manually.
Currently, when I vacuum, I just connect the vacuum to my skimmer, and leaver the sand filter on "filter" mode. When I vacuum, I maybe collect like 10-15 leaves..is this bad?
Where do these leaves do? To my filter or to my pump basket? Not sure because yesterday I opened my pump for the first time in like 3-4 weeks, and there we ALOT of leaves in there. Is that from the 3-4 times I vacuumed?
Should I continue to vacuum in "filter" mode and then backwash once PSI gets high? Or should I be vacuuming in waste mode? If so, same idea of connecting it to the skimmer right?
