Low PSI

Postby Ruben » Sat 14 Jul, 2007 07:13

Hi
I have a 20x40 inground pool 11 ft deep.
Just got back from vacation made adjustment to chemical level.
Three days of storms I had a big mess, and had to vacum a lot.
I back washed ,DE filter and now PSI is around 5-10 normal is 20.
What can I do to get PSI back up.
Thanks
Swiming in Mi only have two weeks before it snows to enjoy!

cleaning might help?

maybe cleaning the filter may help. if you had a big mess, maybe some of that is still caked on the fingers inside your filter.
