    I would say it depends... if the water is clear with debris on the bottom... vac then sweep. If the debris is floating in the water... filter, but vacuum if you think you have floor debris. If you have mainly large debris/leaves, sweep, settle, then vacuum

    I've found that I need to brush then vac same day but with a little time in between. Let's the stuff I brush settle to the bottom.
