    normal psi reading

    My pool was installed last year. I was new to the entire running of the pool and found this site to be a life saver.
    Last year it seemed as though my psi kept going up greater than 20-22 so I would need to back wash prob. once every 1-2 weeks. I was told it should stay around 14-15psi. This year I opened the pool myself , the pool looks great,clear and sparkling. My psi continues to stay @11-12 and never higher, it worries me that the gauge is not in properly and/or the psi has not budged since opening the pool in June;even after vacuuming.
    Any thoughts?
    Any tests I can do to see if the gauge is working as it should?

    It sounds to me that back washing every 1-2 weeks is what's out of the norm, unless you were fighting algae. I have a DE filter and it stays at 10psi when clean, I wash it at 15psi. I think you are fine, have a drink and enjoy the pool.
