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.

Just let your filter get dirty and the pressure will increase. To increase the flow rate from the norm a bigger pump will be required.


The pressure increasing indicates that something is blocking the filter.


Clean the filter, enlarge the filter, enlarge the pipes coming from and or to the filter, enlarge the pool pump, If you have a cartrige filter put another one in paralel next to it.


The same as any pool. you plug the vacuum hose into the vacuum plate over the top of the leaf basket, connect the vacuum head to the end with the pole on it leave the sand filter on filter setting and vacuum the bottom.


A clogged filter? The pressure AT THE GAUGE will drop after the pool is backwashed and also during vacumning. As the filter becomes clogged the pressure AT THE GAUGE will increase. The opposite effect occurs at the inlet eyeball.


You normally vacuum on filter. There are some situations like when the pool has been treated with a floculent that the pool is vacuumed to waste.


If your filter is repaired then you can just vacuum the pool.


Most likely the filter. i would check the fingers inside the filter for tears.


If you are using a pool vacuum on an extendable rod just plug the hose into the vacuum plate over the leaf basket behind the static skimmer. Leave the sand filter setting on filter and just run the vac over the pool floor the same as you would a home vacuum cleaner.


The setting of the sand filter should be on filter for a normal vacuum. However if you are getting rid of the results of using clarifier from the bottom of the pool you would be beter of vacuuming to waste.


submerge the hose in the pool first to get all of the air out, then attach to the skimmer.



If you have a sand filter just set it on Back wash


You should not put chemicals in the pool while the vacuum is in. Put the chemicals in and give them a chance to work first. Then you can vacuum and backwash the filter as needed.


IT is possible that you have a damaged cartridge in a cartridge filter or the sand filter is not set on filter when you vacuum or the laterals in the sand filter are worn and it is blowing sand back into the pool.


What is a normal operating pressure for a jacuzzi sand filter for an above ground pool?"


when the pressure is high on filter mode it usually means that a backwash is required.


Usually the pressure gauge on your pool equipment indicates how much pressure there is before the filter. as the pressure goes up it indicates that the filter is getting blocked and needs a backwash or cleaning. while the pressure is low the filter does not need cleaning.


Add the aluminum sulphate to the pool. Run the filter for two hours. Wait overnight to vacuum the bottom of the pool.


The same as the floor vacuum inside the house but instead of it sucking air it sucks water through the filter. Just run the pool hose from the pool vacuum to the vacuum plate over the top of the leaf basket. then turn on the pump and runi t along the floor of the pool.



The cleaning schedules varies from filter to filter, but a general guideline on any swimming pool filter is to take a reading when the filter is clean, then clean the pool filter when the pressure rises about 10 psi.


vacuum using the filter.(it should have tubes and an attachment



To bypass a non functioning pool filter, or to keep your pool filter in pristine condition, first you need to back wash the pool. Once the pool has been back washed, you will need a leaf skimmer, a telescoping pole, a tile brush, a pumice stone, an algae brush, and a pool vacuum.
