i do not have a sand filter so i had to take a hose and siphon it from the bottom. it is so fine it will spread easy so i had to go slow and try not to touch the bottom. it drop everything to the bottom and it was all over the bottom of the pool not one area. The product is meant for sand filters not regular cartage pools. It was time consuming for me with no sand filter pump but it drop everything to the bottom getting it up was the trick without a sand filter but it says on the bottle sand filter use,

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LongIslandGlobal Didn't meet expectations
First of all, I followed the instructions rather carefully, checked and adjusted chemistry, vacuumed only to waste (not to filter) and actually did it twice. The water is marginally (very marginally) better and it's not clear if using this was all that helpful. I was expecting slightly foggy water with lots of debris precipitated on the bottom, that was not it. I have sufficient experience in taking care of my pool and am pretty sure I did everything correctly. The product did not meet my needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dave Product did it's job, but led to another problem
I was having trouble with algae in my pool and added the powder pool shock. After shocking the pool, I ended up with dead algae floating at the top and cloudy water. I added some sink and sweep in there and it took all the dead algae to the bottom and the top. Now I have dead algae on the bottom of the pool and top. It is now slimy on the top and I can't get it clear because when I vaccum the pool it just gets re-circulated and clouds the water again. I must say, I do have a beautiful blue-green water color though.

After using this, you let it settle and have to manually vacuum the debris using the waste option on your system INSTEAD of running the vacuumed debris through the filter.

The product works great. It says on the bottle "do not run through filter, waste only." Running it through your filter can also mess up your filter.

It does drop the suspended particles but when you vacuum the material off the bottom it goes right through the filter and back into suspension in the pool.
