A pool with a sand filter or for that mater any filter is set up to push water through the fitter to be filtered. when the filter is clean the gauge in front of the filter Will have a low pressure reading. As the filter gets loaded with more of the dust and dirt that comes from the pools water it becomes harder for the water to pass through the filter and the pressure on the gauge goes up when the pressure get high on the gauge it is time to backwash the sand filter or to clean the cartridge filter. When the pressure on the gauge is high the suction from the pool is low. When the suction from the pool is low even when the pressure on the gauge is low there may be a problem with the pump, or a blockage between the pump and the pool, To increase the amount of pressure on a clean filter the only thing that can be done is to enlarge the pump.
