Just a quick question - Usually my filter runs at 15psi. Its been steady at 15 for a few weeks (filter is always running 24/7) and I havent had to bump the filter since I got the pool opened and cleaned (it was a big green swamp!). We've had a couple heavy rains and I've drained the pool a few times but the pressure has always stayed at 15.
Overnight we had some heavy rain again and this morning it was a little higher, about 18 so I bumped it and now the pressure is at around 11. Is that normal for that to happen?
I have noticed that some DE getting back into my pool. Would that cause the drop in pressure after bumping? Like I said, its been at 15 this entire time.
I added two scoops of DE just in case so now the pressure is at around 12-13. I do plan on taking apart the filter to clean it and check for leaks, just wasn't planning on doing it this soon! I just figured the DE was residual from me bumping the pool so much during opening.
