Your question seems too easy as it is a basic requirement of pool cleaning. However: Attach your vacuum head to your side outlet (unscrew the cover in the side of the pool) using a floating hose. turn off the valves to the bottom drain and the skimmers, leave the pump setting on filtration, fill the hose with water and turn on the pump. After vacuuming the bottom of the pool, switch off pump and return valves to previous setting. be sure to backwash the filter after cleaning if required.

You vacuum to waste whenever you have alot of dead algae or debris and you don't want it to recirculate thru the filter back into pool.
