I have some fine sand/dirt in the bottom of the pool - I'm assuming it's not DE but you never know! I guess I need to vacuum it and I have the hose to fit to the weir basket and the vacuum brush head and know that I need to fill the hose with water etc and the mechanics of the vacuuming.
My question is will vacuuming this fine sand damage the pump? I guess I have no choice but is there a filter or something that can catch the sand (perhaps in the pump basket) before it hits the pump?
Also, do I vacuum to the filter or vacuum to waste?
