Do you turkey-blast your LR for PWC's?

Do any of you use a turkey blaster or a powerhead to blast away detritus or junk off of your LR before you do your water changes?

I've always done that, but I wonder if you all just rely on your CUC to do that.

I never do. For me, that's what my CUC is for.

I do with either turkey baster or small pump.I don't care how strong your flow is,or how large a cleanup crew you have,stuff still will get down in your rocks that good to have your filtration remove.
