If you pressure is low on these pool filters, there are several things that you will want to check. First, make sure that your system strainer baskets are not dirty or clogged. Also, check the suction side of your pump to make sure that there are no leaks. Make sure taht you filter cartridge does not need to be replaced or cleaned. Make sure your pump is properly primed and that the pump impeller vanes are not blocked. Make sure that your strainer basket is not broken to allow debris in.

Pump should stop at 40psi and start at 20psi. pressure does not drop to 20psi but pump comes on immediately when running water. how can I adjust it so that pressure drops to 20psi before pump starts?

You are actually missing air. Your system is water bound. The temporary fix is turn the pump off, drain the tank and start it back up. There is a air volume regulator there that has probably failed.The water you pump has very little air dissolved in it however when it is in your pressure tank; it adsorbed some air from that eventually depleting the air from your tank.

My twin tank 2hp comp will run but pressure wont build up pass 20 lbs.

If the motor is working OK but pressure won't go over 20psi you may have an air leak but most probably have damaged piston rings or cylinder or the valve plate is damaged. Check to make sure the tank drain valve isn't open or that you don't have leaks in any of the air lines. If that's OK, you will have to remove the head from the cylinder to check the valve plate and piston/cylinder assembly. The reeds on the valve plate should be flat and not overly discolored (black or blued) from heat. If they are they can warp or get brittle and break. Since your compressor is oil lubricated it is rare for the piston/rings/cylinder to get damaged unless it's run with no oil so check those areas for scoring or damage like broken rings. Replace whatever is damaged and keep the oil full.

Creepy crawly no longer sucks leaves from pool bottom, pump pressure is at 8 only instead of 10.

If pressure is low, problem is before gauge and filter. If pressure is high, problem is filter or piping after filter. In you case it sounds like something is caught in hose or pipes . Could also be something stuck in the impeller. Remove cleaner and hoses and see if pressure goes back to normal. If it does not, check impeller. If it does, something is probably caught in cleaner or hoses.

Pressure at 15 psi after backwashing

No that is normal pressure, when the pressure rises more than 10 psi over that in a 24 hour time, you should backwash the filter. Hope this helps

Hi sstanl, Is your pump output or flow normal back to pool? if there is no water flowing through system you will get no expulsion of air or pressure reading on gauge. If pump is working then you probably have a clogged air release valve and maybe a clogged gauge. Just remove air relief assembly from filter top, remove gauge and clear any obstructions in parts. You should easily be able to blow air thru assy with gauge removed. Teflon tape the components and snug them back in their places. restart your pump and voila! air will come out when prime is established.
