Filter Pressure

My filter pressure keeps running high. I have a DE pool. I took the filter apart and hosed off the filter panels but it is still running high. When I backwash, nothing seems to be coming out, at least not I what I should due to the high pressure. Could it be that maybe I need to soak the filter panels in muriac acid. Maybe they are clogged even tough I hosed them off. I am at a loss.

Soak the panels, they are most likely clogged.

When you say running high, what is normal and what is high in PSI?
