New house, old pool. Gauge at sand filter was not working and was replaced. What is normal? Showing about 12 psi. Approximate 18000-20000 gallon pool using a jacuzzi magnum 1HP pump. Also, where do I find a manual on the pump?

That sounds like a low pressure.
Are you sure that is the pressure? Is the gauge good?
Has your pressure been better in the recent past?
Ensure that you are not losing water somewhere that you may not have seen.
If you checked all of these things, there could be a problem with the pump or piping coming up from below.
Your softener is a self contained unit with ingreidants that will degrade over time. If the unit is oversaturated it won't perform as it did originally. You can add external sand, carbon, etc., filters to help softener work more effieciently but, you may have to replace unit. You can try salt that removes iron, etc., Morton comes in green bags. This may improve your end result. It may be time to replace the unt.
I would first need to know where the filter is located in the spa. Not knowing however, let me tell you how to remove it with a couple of different ways. if the filter is inside a skimmer opening, you will need to make sure the pump is turned off and the filter will simply pull up. there may be a hair/lint basket inside that type of skimmer that much be removed first. those are normally put in there with a twisting type action. there will be two flat sides to the basket that when lined up with the adjacent flat spots inside the housing the basket will come right out and under that is the filter. The other style of filter is a pressure filter. This style has a lid with a ring-lock that holds a lid down. Once the ring-lock is unthreaded you can pull the lid up and get access to the filter which is just pressed down into the water.
under the head that you spin for yor settings is a gasket.you must take out all the bolts on the head to replace it.it is called a spider gasket.it should cost you about 8 0r 10 dollars at any pool place near you.
