Thread: High Pressure

    High Pressure

    Hi, I am a single mom who typically takes care of my pool myself. It runs at 17-20 pounds of pressure, usually. But it has shot up to 30 and I see that the vaccuum is now running slowly, if at all, the waterfall from the spa is very low, and the jets on the spa don't go on high at all. Help!

    Welcome to TFP.
    What type filter do you have?
    If it's a Sand or DE it needs backwashing or maybe bumping. If it's a Cartridge it needs cleaning.

    I have DE. Does back washing mean cleaning the filters?

    Yes. If you can tell us the brand and type someone can give you pointers as to how to go about it if you aren't already familiar with it.
