    New pressure gauge question

    My old pressure gauge had water in it because the pool guy left it out over the winter in the filter lid. The pressure gauge would show 10-12 as normal pressure with backwashing above 12.

    This year I decided to take care of the pool myself and after opening it, the pool was green. I finally got it clear and clean. I also replaced the pressure gauge a couple of weeks later and it is showing 15-18. Would you take the filter apart and clean it or make that my new normal pressure?

    Also, I threw the old pressure gauge away and was not thinking that I can use it when the pool gets closed. Where do I find the plug that goes on top of the filter lid when closing the pool?

    I would want to start with a clean filter (after breakdown and recharge) to set my clean pressure.
