The setting of the sand filter should be on filter for a normal vacuum. However if you are getting rid of the results of using clarifier from the bottom of the pool you would be beter of vacuuming to waste.

The same as any pool. you plug the vacuum hose into the vacuum plate over the top of the leaf basket, connect the vacuum head to the end with the pole on it leave the sand filter on filter setting and vacuum the bottom.

If you are using a pool vacuum on an extendable rod just plug the hose into the vacuum plate over the leaf basket behind the static skimmer. Leave the sand filter setting on filter and just run the vac over the pool floor the same as you would a home vacuum cleaner.

If you're talking about your pool filter, it should be set to filter or run. Use the bypass or recirculate setting if you wish to circulate the water without having the water pass through the filter. Use the backwash setting to clean the filter.

You should not put chemicals in the pool while the vacuum is in. Put the chemicals in and give them a chance to work first. Then you can vacuum and backwash the filter as needed.
