I am new to owning a pool. We bought a house and it was here. Everything had been going pretty good since we got it clean and running. A few weeks ago after backwashing the pressure was at 10psi. It has remained at 10psi for about 3 weeks. I made the bad choice of backwashing because I had been vaccuming and thought I should. Well now the PSI is at like 2. I know this can not be good. What do I do? What happened? How do I get it back up to 12-15 PSI. The motor sounds fine, but there is weak water pressure coming from the return.
The gauge is brand new too.
You really should start a new topic instead of adding to someone else's six month old discussion.
Is your filter sand or DE? If DE, you simply backwashed all your filtering material out and need to reload it.
