The pressure gage on you rswimming pool FILTER should be around 8 to 12#'s. There is no pressure gage on or in a swimming pool. The pressure gage would be on the top of your filter .. . that's the large tank with up to 2" pipes plumbed into it, located next to the heater and the pump - the small pot with a motor attached to it.

How do you check gauges in swimming pool?

The gauge on the pool filtration equipment is there to indicate back pressure in front of the pump. Most of them have a section that is done in red, when the needle reaches the red it indicates that the filter needs cleaning. Otherwise when the gauge gets about two thirds up you should clean the filter. Your judgment with this will improve with time and experience.
