I got a new gauge a couple of weeks ago and it went right to 18 and stayed there
I backwashed a week ago because I needed to drain water because of so much rain. Anyway, we usually run our pump about 8 hrs a day but hubby left it on all night Saturday. I turned it off when I got up. Later in the day when I turned it back on I noticed the water in the pump basket wasn't full and the gauge was reading 12. When I turn it on in the mornings now there is barely any water in the basket and it never completely fills up. The gauge stays on 12.
Could there be a problem or should I just accept it's not going any higher until I need to backwash? Any thoughts on why the basket isn't filling all the way up?
