Question about Pool & Spa
Pressure gauge is reading 245kpa, i have never seen it above 20kpa and it is usually 5 or 10kpa. Is it worth trying a backwash, or is this a clear sign that the media is due for replacement?

SOURCE: No pressure at all on pump gauge
Without knowing your pip and valve layout, it is difficult to assess the stiuation, but it sounds to me as if either a valve that lets the water into the filter is shut, or the filter is full of air and needs to be primed. On some models if you loosen the top ring until the water fills the chamber and starts to overflow that takes care of the problem. But if you cannot tell by looking at the layou if a valve that should be open is closed, or don't know how to prime it, don't run the pump until they can come back.

You probably have too big of pump. It is pushing the finer stuff right back into pool. Try adding a clarifier. Don't backwash either until the pressure goes up.
