Intex Sand Filter

I recently purchased a used pool with a fairly new Intex sand filter. Hooked everything up and all was working properly. After running the pool for a while I noticed the pressure from the jets had increased to where it was shoving pool toys around the pool. Changed the sand, checked for blockages and so on but can not find the problem.

Hi Stephanie

I have never heard of too much pressure being a problem, it is usually just the opposite, the filter keeps loosing pressure.

The only way I would be concerned about this is if the filter is not cleaning the pool. If it is doing it's job then leave it alone. As the sand clogs up with dirt the flow will slow down. When you notice this, backwash it, and get this strong flow back again.
