Hi! I am attempting to open my pool for the first time by myself. Everything seemed to go fine except that pressure gauge on my filter is reading zero (no movement at all). The person who closed the pool last year put the gauge in the pump basket & it has been sitting in a small bit of water all winter. Something has gooed/bubbled on the inside & outside (maybe lubricant?). It doesn't appear to be touching the needle.
My questions is this... everything seems to running fin/normally & I have a swamp that I am anxious to begin getting cleared up. Is it ok to go ahead & leave the filter running until I can get a new one to try? Or should I ABSOLUTELY make sure the gauge is working before I continue? Obviously, I would be keeping a super close eye on everything. Opinions?
