What is the pressure on the gage on top of the filter say? Some pools operate with about 12 # reading. Some operate at 25, 30 & 35 #'s. Still others operate within the 4 to 8 # range. If yours is much higher than those very high indications it could be that your filter needs cleaning. If it is reading zero - it could be a faulty gage or plugged suction line, skimmer basket, pump basket. You could also feel at the skimmer port with your hand to see how strong the flow is. If you can see water circulating at a rather swift movement that is an indication you have flow.

Purchase a book at your local big box hardware store for the basics on pool care. Well worth it in aggravation and mistakes.
