Question about Hayward Pro Series 18" Above Ground Pool Sand Filter System with Pump
I am running the start up chemicals and the filter has been running for long periods. I backwash when needed but after 3 days the pressure has started to build over 15 after an hour of run time. the water is not green just cloudy. checked all skimmer baskets they are clear. Changed the sand weeks ago. can't find a reason for the high pressure and lack of suction.
When pool is cloudy/turbid, and filter is working properly...
that contaminant ends up somewhere! In your filter, and if the filter clogs up - pressure climbs, at a rate of within an hour as you stated; That Is Awesome! Backwash and keep doing that until clear, maintaining a chlorine level on the higher side, 3.0 ppm!
Add clarifier daily, to assist in clearing.
But the important thing here would be to know... After a good 2-3 minute backwash, do you get full suction again?
If so, you are Golden! If not check impeller, it may be clogged internally.

Sounds like it needs a good 1minute back wash do you have a rinse on your multiport backwash stop rinse stop do 3 cycles of that think though everytime you go to each mode turn off pump backwash off turn to rinse back on again stop pump almost like switch gears driving a stick

The sand is clogged and needs a backwash or change.
