Sand Filter does not work

I have a bit of a tip for vacuuming after you've flocked your pool - couldn't find anywhere better to post it so I thought I'd put it here!

If you have a creepy crawly, disable the jittery bits that cause the creepy to crawl, and get in the pool and move the vacuum around by hand. Otherwise the jittery bits will disturb all the flocked particles from the bottom of the pool and spread them everywhere, so you then have to wait for everything to re-settle and do it again. Not good if you live with water restrictions and pumping to waste needs to be avoided as much as possible.

After the rain the pool was green and cloudy, so I shocked it. The next morning I began vacuuming, only to find that everything was going through the filter and back into the pool. The sand had been changed earler in the summer and everything had worked perfectly.
