Best Answer

The pressure gauge that is set up in front of the pool filter is there to show you when the filter needs cleaning or back washing. when the pressure gets high it indicates that there is too much dirt there for the water to pass efficiently, Cleaning it at this point will reduce the pressure and make the water flow better through the filter
