What should my filter pressure be???

Postby Brian87gt » Sat 06 Jun, 2009 20:16

When I backwash my sand filter it starts out fresh at 8 psi. When it gets to 12-13 the suction, as well as the return jet pressure is next to nothing. Is that correct? I always thought that the pressure was supposed to increase by 8-10 psi before the filter needed to be backwashed.
