    Re: De Filter Pressure

    Just be thankful it's taken that long to get a 3 psi rise. You must be doing a good job with keeping the pool sanitized properly. A 3 psi rise from 10 would mean that it's risen 30% so I would backwash now as it's recommended to backwash when filter pressure rises by 25%. If it started at 12 psi, then you could wait until it hit about 15.

    EDIT: 25% recommended pressure rise
