Question about Pool & Spa
This is normal pressure! As the filter becomes more dirty you will see the pressure get higher 15/20 it's time to backwash!

The pump is to big for the pool. So with that being said it is asking you to back wash more then you should need to because it is pulling water at a much higher rate then what your pool is actually calling for. I would recommend taking it down to a 700gl and this would solve your problem. Also you can replace the drain lines and suction lines to smaller lines and that will also take care of the issue at hand but I do not recommend that at all

It wouldn't hurt to replace the gauge every few years, since it makes contact with heavily chlorinated water. They are available for less than $10.
