We have had water in our new pool almost 2 weeks (as of tomorrow). The skimmers are emptied daily, we use hair nets, have a full sun yard with very little debris from the neighbors' trees. Keeping the pool clean has been effortless, so far.
The last 2 days, PB finally did clean up and fill/grading of our yard. After that we had TONS of dirt in my clean pretty pool. I brushed the first evening and circulated the pump on high for several hours (it has been running medium speed for 12ish hours/day) but finally broke out the vacuum yesterday (plastic head, plastic wheels) and vacuumed then brushed and left the pump on high for a couple hours. After this, it occurred to me to check my filter pressure to see if I needed to backwash. I was told by the startup guy that the pressure gauge in the red zone with the pump in medium speed is the indicator for backwashing. My reading for that criteria is about 12, so no worries there. However, on high speed my gauge reads in the red at about 22. On low speed my gauge reads below the green.
Should I be concerned about the pressure at the high and low speed?
Here's some pictures to help clarify:
