Question about Pool & Spa
First, try a RUBBER mallet and GENTLY tap the perimeter of the Valve Head Flange to seat the Valve Head into the canister tank. If that does not work, you either need a new O-ring or your canisters center tube is off center or there is too much sand UNDER the canisters internal Filter Fingers at the bottom of the tank.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: the tank pressure is at 60
I don't have that particular brand, but it is not good that the PSI is that high. Backflush for at least 3 cycles of 60 seconds each.
example: Turn off pump, move to Backflush turn on pump for 60 seconds. Turn off pump, switch to rinse, turn on pump, run til water runs clear.
Repeat 3 cycles. If the PSI still doesn't lower, you may have broken laterals in the bottom of the sand and will need replaced.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Lots of sand? You may have a broken lateral in your filter.
To repair, you will have to remove all the sand from the tank to physically inspect.
Might you have changed the sand this year? (top 1/3 needed to be changed every 3 to 5 years normally) If you changed the sand ... did you put water in the filter tank first? If not ... there is a good possibility you broke a lateral (a small pipe with slits in it) when you put the sand into the filter.
It could be that you have too much sand in the filter. Check the owners manual for the clearance - top of sand to top of filter.

SOURCE: I have a hayward SP714
Sand filters have a screen at the bottom. This screen keeps the sand from getting out because it has slits or holes that are smaller than the size of the sand grain. The slits are large enough for the water to pass. If the material breaks there are areas that are large enough to allow the sand to pass and this won't stop until you replace the strainer elements.
In order to do this, you must remove the sand, remove and inspect the strainer and replace the sand.
Bring your model to a local pool supplier, confirm what I am saying, make sure they have the necessary parts and go from there.
