If the pump is working, then you should have pressure. Low or no pressure usually means that the gauge itself needs to be replaced. High pressure usually means the filter is clogged with debris and needs to be backwashed (if Sand or DE) or the Cartridge cleaned.

Why does this truck keep blowing out the gasket on the oil filter. it is on a 1998 F150 4.6L any ideas as to why?

One of two possible issues... Remove the exsisting filter, check that it's rubber sealing ring is still attached to the cartridge. Then use a flash light and a small pick, and check to confirm that a previous cartridge gasket is not become embedded in the machined seating ring of the mount. If so, remove the old gasket, and reseat filter. A second possibility is that the threaded cartridge mount is damaged, and is not alllowing the cartridge to seat fully against the machined ring.

Your pool filter is blowing green back in to pool?

Change your filter

What if pool pump pressure is too high?

Check to see if you have debris in your hair & lint pot. If not, then check to see if you have debris in your skimmer basket. If not, then you will either have an obstruction at the return line, too small of an eyeball in your return line or your filter sand needs changing. My guess is that if you have a problem with clarity of your pool water during a swim year that the sand needs changing. 5 years is the maximum for filter sand. If you have a cartridge filter, change the cartridge. If you have a D.E. filter, disassemble and clean the grids. re assemble and re-coat. Oh, by the way, if you leave the filter openings exposed over the winter, check for critter houses.
