There is no "real" normal. Pumps can show pressure readings around 10 psi (usually the minimum) to 20-25 psi. I have opened my pool one spring with a pressure of 10 psi and the next year open the pool with a reading of 15 psi. Nothing is wrong with the pump or filter as I get good flow in the outtake and the debris sight glass (on the filter) is crystal clear. A good solution to ensure proper pressure would be to "baseline" your reading on opening of the pool. It it reads, for example: 10 psi, this would be your baseline reading. Keep a watch of your gauge. Make sure when your pump if off, your gauge should show a reading of "0". If it increases to 15-20 psi during operation, it's time to back flush. Your pressure gauge is an excellent tool which will tell you when you should back flush....
When vacuuming a pool manually a loss of pressure can be caused by something getting stuck in the hose. A leaf or a large bug can get stuck in the hose and cause it to lose pressure.
There are return fittings built into the pool walls. You will hook up the pump to the pool filter using PVC connections. What type of pool and pump/filter do you have? I can answer the question more thoroughly with more information.
Do you have air bubbles coming back to the pool thru the return lines? If so, you have a suction leak. Could be between the skimmer, maindrain, at the pool pump. Most likely place to start is the pump. Check the lid o-ring for proper seat and fit. Check the pump seal. Check any fitting that goes into the pump pot - in and out plumbing plus small plugs at the base of the pump. K
What size heat pump i need for inground pool size 14 x31
If the pump is big enough and the pipe work is done corectly there should not be any problem with it.
pump was ok until I cleaned mess in pool. after that lost pressure. Changed sand but no luck
When the pressure on your pump goes up
What is a normal operating pressure for a jacuzzi sand filter for an above ground pool?"
Certainly, if the pump is running. The primary pump intake is the main drain at the deepest part of the pool.
a leak on a pipe
The pressure increasing indicates that something is blocking the filter.
In most cases a booster pump is used to provide additional water pressure to an automatic pool cleaner , sometimes they are used to provide additional water flow and pressure to a connected spa. A low pressure pump may also be used to pump water through a solar heater.
Probably below 5#'s ???
Clean and empty in ground pool filter, clean and empty filter near pool pump. Be sure all whips are clear of dibris. also do a flush of the system. If this does not help, you will need to have a C02 charge done between the pool line and the pool pump. OR you may need to have your impeller replaced in the pool motor.
