I have a painted pool, and I've brushed all the paint flakes down to one corner of the deep end. One way to get them out is to hook up the vacuum hose to the skimmer and suck them all out, but this involves racing back and forth to empty the pump strainer basket, and to be honest it's a complete PIA. There must be a better way!
I can see all this stuff just sitting there, and it makes me want to get a dustpan and brush and sweep it up? Is there a pool equivalent of a dustpan and brush? It's quite a large pile of stuff and it seems a bit strange to put it all through the circulation system.
