Vacuum to waste?

This is my first time opening on my own. I got the mesh cover off, and there is a layer of debris on the steps and bottom of pool. I know there are leaves in there, too. We’ve had a lot of rain, so there’s more water than needed in the pool. My question is, should I vacuum to waste first or try digging out what I can get from the bottom with the net first and then vacuum to waste?

Vac to waste is great, but you will lose the water height you need to continue rather quickly. Try to brush as much as you can to one area to get more of it out. The first few passes with the brush will probably disturb more than it sweeps, but keep letting it settle and after a few passes you'll have alot of it in the one spot for easy/quick removal.
