Response to Hello Brian - If the pool water is clear and the pressure rises on the pressure gauge quickly, the fingers will need to be cleaned or replaced. If the water is cloudy and the pressure on the gauge rises quickly, this is normal. You may have to backwash several times a day until the water is clear. If the pressure on the gauge is dropping, you may have an air leak. Check out our guide on how to correct air leaks.
