I have a third wave maker but I cannot seem to position it right in dead spot without making sand storm. Any advice

Maybe position it behind some rock or positions it so the flow is going through one oft hose little holes, pointed at the dead spot. If that makes sense.

I've come up with a solution at least temporarily I put a third power head / waveMaker in the area where the low flow is and turn it on manually for 30 minutes or so a day so it does not disrupt the same too much

You could set it on a cheap timer, but that sounds like it works. Hope it does long term!

I do this with my hydors.
Switch one off and other on with timers(cheapo) every 15 minutes.
Moves water differently everytime!
