I just went out back to do a vacuuming on our pool since it seems like Spring in mid-February here in Austin, TX. The pressure on my filter is reading WAY HIGH, like 50+psi. The pool is pretty dirty, and I backwashed it for about a minute and the pressure still didn't come down.
I'm also getting intermittent suction from the skimmer and output from the jets. With the pump off, the pressure is about 38psi.
Should I do a longer backwash until the pressure comes down?
Never seen this before.
