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.

Here is a link to the hayward manual. Be sure to follow the pre-coating insturctions carefully.
Use only the swimming pool grades of
diatomite, such as:
CELATOM . . . . . . . . . . . Eagle-Picher Industries, Inc.
AQUA-CEL . . . . . . . . . . Johns-Manville Products Corporation
DICALITE 4200 . . . . . . . Grefco, Inc.
WITCO . . . . . . . . . . . . . Witco Corporation
The EC-50 filter uses a 5 lb. (2.3 kgs.) charge of diatomite (D.E.)

Here is a link to the hayward manual for a EC-50 I think its almost the same as the EC-45

I take it this a cartridge filter. Might be the filter is clogged if the pump is operating ok. I would remove the filter (be sure to shut off the valves), and clean it. Degrease is first with a filter degreaser. If there are mineral deposits on the filter, give it an acid bath. Be sure to rinse the filter THOROUGHLY before reinstalling. Since this is a new home for you, I would check the pump impellar, basket and skimmers for debris too...

My new ec50 is clogging frequently. Is at 18 psi


lower the better (psi) this means the water is flowing fast through the filter, high pressures means it's time to clean filter again. keep cleaning until the pool is squeaky clean, then you can go back to cleaning once a week

WE have a EC50 system w/1HP matrix. Pump runs


Hayward Matrixs' have a one year warranty.

If it is tripping the circuit that is usually an electrical problem, and has nothing to do with the motor. Open up that back with the motor off and try to turn that shaft with a flat head, if it turns than it is an electrical problem; if it doesn't then contact Hayward directly for warranty information. Hayward is a pain to get ahold of but they are great about honoring their warranties.

The Matrixs' are fairly new and I have yet to see a shaft freeze up.
