problems with pool filter

I have a 16 x 32 above ground with a S210TC hayward sand filter. I have checked the sand and did a deep clean. Can I send someone my picture of my pipes coming into the filter and have you check to make sure I don't have them backwards? I've been trying to clear up pool for a week with the pump running continuously.

I wrote about this earlier. When I backwash, the water does not come out as strong as in years past. I don't see much brown and green water when I backwash, but when I rinse, I see quite a bit of green and brown water. When I place it back in filter mode, the green and brown water comes right back into the pool.
