Hi We have no water pressure coming from the filter back into the pool it is at 8 psi when normally it is about twenty.   We have a sand filter.  There are no air bubbles in pump basket or coming back into pool.  What would cause this and how do I fix it.?   We have a pool party planned for this week-end.   Thank you for your help  Sue

I lose pressure when my sand pump isn't in recirculate function of gave a lot of debris and algae. I've added chemicals bit due to pressure issues I can't vacuum.
