I assume you left the pool filled over the winter?
The sediment is likely calcium or binding agent from the chemical treatment used, using a vac doesn't work as when you such the sediment it dissolves in the water. If you set your filter to backwash or vent \ direct to drain and then place the vac over the area it will pump out the water out.
Over time of running the pump and stirring up the water the sediment should collect in the filter
