Hi,
Most of those pumps are a single speed motor. Because of that it is difficult to slow it down.
The best thing you can do is to install a valve in the outlet hose and slow the water down that way....it will not hurt the pump and if you had a meter on the wiring to the pump you would see that it will actually use LESS electricity with the valve part way shut.
That way you can easily adjust how much water is going through the pump...

Open the plugs on the bottom front of the pump pot and on the pump housing itself. These two plugs will do the pump and just the pump. You should have simmilar plugs on the filter, heater, chlorinator and any other equiptment on the system.

The earth filter is in need of a good cleaning. You may even need to acid wash it. Welcome to the high-maintenance draw-backs of a DE filter! Once cleared your system should go back to operating normally.
