Not very familiar with this type of filter. I believe the 550 is a cartridge filter? Check to make sure the cartridges are seated correctly and secure. Could be bad o-rings and gaskets. To start, make sure skimmer baskets are clean and there are no cracks. Then, check the strainer basket in the pump. Make sure it is clean and not cracked. Then check your cartridges, make sure there are no tears and they are seated correctly. If I'm wrong and this is a DE filter then there is most likely a tear in the grids. What size debris is getting past the filter?
