When the pressure in front of the filter get high or the suction to the filter is to low its time to backwash.

If I was to make a guess, I would say if you have not tried backwashing the filter, then it is time to change the filter media inside the filter.

There is often sediment because it comes out of the ground and up a steel pipe. Fit a sediment filter at the pressure tank, it's very easy.

Is a sand filter system or a saltwater filter system for above ground pools?

You may need a new pressure gauge. They are inexpensive and can be found at any place that sells pool products. OR That may be all that you are going to get out of the system you have.

Sand filters usually have a pressure gauge in front of them indicating the back pressure before the filter.When the filter needs to be cleaned this pressure gets high. usually it has a red section on the gauge. When it hits the red it is time to think about back washing. If the gauge does not work as so often happens with these things. you can usually judge it from the lack of suction coming from the filter. After backwash you will note the pressure will be down and the suction will be up.

You don't. Just make sure the key is not on (best to not have it in the ignition at all) When you loosen the fuel filter, the pressure will relieve by leaking on the ground. Expect less than a half cup of fuel to leak out from pressure. The remainder fuel will be from inside the filter housing. Get ready to get your hands soaked in gasoline. Dont listen to that guy. You can relieve the gas pressure by simply open your gas cap and leave if off the entire time when you're working on your fuel filter. Some fuel will still leaks out from the fuel filter but at least it's not going to spray on your face.

The fuel filter is located underneath the air filter box. It is quite awkward to get to unless you complete remove the air filter box. Be sure to open your fuel tank to relieve pressure before unhooking the fuel lines and put a pan on the ground to catch the fuel.

This question depends on where the one asking the question is located. Jacuzzi spas may be purchased from independent retailers in your local area. They will be able to give you advice based on ground conditions and will also be accessible to you should something go wrong.

When a man stands on the ground his weight (force) is spread over a small area, causing high pressure on the ground (pressure is force divided by area). When a man lies on the ground his same weight (force) is spread over a larger area, causing low pressure on the ground (pressure is force divided by area).

There is a certain amount of sediment in all well water - it is coming out of the ground remember. Every well should have a sediment filter before the pressure tank.

Change the oil and filter. Install an AC/Delco filter and the correct amount of 10w30 oil. If the problem still presists, have an oil pressure test run. You may also have a defective oil pressure sending unit, loose wiring, or the wiring may be frayed and touching ground. Check the wiring throughly going to the oil pressure sending unit.

If you have 36 ft. x 16 ft. pool I would run the filter and pump 24 hr a day and backwash when ever you have a 7-10 psi raise on filter pressure gauge. All commercial pools run 24 hr per day. If you want sparkling clear pool I recommend that you do the same. john www.unblockabledraincovers.com

The pressure of tectonic plates forming under the ground builds up. and creates the pressure.

It sounds like it may be the pipe that the back wash water comes out of when the filter is on back wash. A: The above is wrong. That pipe is for air suction to the spa jets thus giving the "Jacuzzi" action or aeration at the spa jets. k

In simplest terms, an above ground pool is built the handle the water pressure exerted from the inside but not the pressure of the ground around the outside. It takes the special structure of a pool built for burial in order for it to not collapse when placing it into the ground and backfilling.
