you will get a bit of flow back when first turn on pump after service.
If you are not - use pool filter socks in your skimmer box (pool - not - pump skimmer). This will help lengthen the service times on your DE filter. Very helpful when 'Vacing' the pool :)

That's common, it happens for about 30 seconds when you first turn the filter on. If it is happening more than that then their may be a small tear in the nylon of your fingers or a bolt and nut loose on the tubesheets.

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
High pressure at the filter means the water is held up and not able to freely flow thru, hence the rise in pressure. If repeated bumps and refills are not working your filter fabric is clogged. You can try to wash them (again I assume) and if necessary even try acid washing as well. If none of these works you'll need to replace the fabric or the entire assemblies which is usually near the price of just replacing the filter.

If you can bring the assembly in to a pool store and they are not to busy they may do this for you and probally will show you how it goes together. Once you see it done it is simple enough but their are some tricks that make it easer to do. But watch it once, do it once and you will be an expert.
Your manuel can walk you through the process also.

If your filter gauge on your filter is broken or cracked then you will need to replace it with a new one. Replacing the gauge on the EC40 or another EC Perflex filter requires just a few steps.
The first thing you will want to do is to buy a new replacement gauge for the Hayward EC filter that you are working on. Once you have the new gauge you can remove the gauge one of two different ways. The first way is to carefully grab the gauge with your hands and spin the gauge counter clockwise until it's all the way out. If the gauge is tightened a lot you will have to use the other method to remove the gauge. This method would be to use an open-end wrench or a crescent wrench to remove the gauge from the filter.
Just on top of the gauge threads you will see a square that is made from the brass that the threads are. You can attach your wrench to that square and then turn the gauge counter clockwise to remove it. Once the gauge is removed you will want to install the new EC filter gauge. Before you screw the new gauge into the filter you will want to wrap the filter gauge threads a few times with some Teflon tape so that the gauge doesn't leak. Once you wrap the Hayward EC swimming pool filter gauge a few times with the tape you can screw it back into the pool filter. Once you have hand tightened the filter gauge back into the filter you can use your wrench that you removed the gauge with to tighten the gauge all the way. Be sure to be careful as the gauge stem is made from brass and the filter is made from plastic. If you over tighten the gauge you cab crack the filter housing.
