Help with my filters please

My tank a 125gal and I have 3 EXTREMELY POWERFUL filters (630 GPH X3). Now my problem is that waste accumulates in areas that are not near the filter. The filters have a very strong output and I have them all facing one way so the current goes in one direction but it only moves the waste near the top of the water and does not circulate the waste on the floor of the tank. I can only mount the filter one way and with them mounted that way I cant make the water output hit the bottom of the tank...i cant really explain it that good but hopefully you guys will understand, basically how can I get the water to push the waste on the floor around so the filter can catch it?

Try adding smaller pumps near the bottom. Something around 105gph should suffice. Also, you may try a method that I use, which is putting my intake tubes closer to the bottom. Keep me informed.

hey i put them closer to the bottom...I actually have 3 in there so I started from right to left making the first one face on an angle towards the bottom then the second on an angle towards the middle and the last on an angle but slightly higher. Now every thing is taken from one side of my tank and the current carries it over my filters where it all gets sucked in...Thanks so much...worked greattt!!
