    Get an automatic cleaner or a robot.

    Sometimes, I have dirt on the bottom just hours after vacuuming without having had any swimmers. To those with sparkly pools, it gets annoying. Luckily, I find vacuuming the pool therapeutic.

    Re: Debris Problem

    We have various kinds of debris from the trees in our yard and our neighbors yards all season.. combine that with high pollen times and we've always got something sinking to the bottom. So glad we put in the center drain! We just turn the main center drain on all the way, let most of the larger debris find it's way to the middle and then hook up the vacuum to suck it up. Then I just make a quick trip around the pool to get all the debris that gets caught in the bumps in the liner and expect to do it all again the next day... esp if we think we might swim.

    We bought a Diver Dan pool vac but have found he doesn't work well for us. He gets easily caught in the currents from the return and caught on stairs and drain. I thought I'd done my research but he's just not effective for our situation. Will possibly look for something different when we get power closer to the pool so I can get a robot possibly.

    Re: Debris Problem

    When I should vacuum but don't feel like it, I push the brush around some to stir things up and turn on the pump for a while. Or just get in and swim and mix it up that way. That large surface area of a pool collects dust just like the furniture in the house does.

    Have you tried skimmer socks? Knee highs work too and are cheaper. They catch a lot of crud, may help a bit.
