Its definitely pumping through the filter. Its a relatively large filter for a low flow pump so it has a very minimal resistance to flow. Box says 6.4' lift . Found the kil-a-watt, it uses 18 watts. I originally decommissioned this filter because the head pressure was a little high, psi against my 3/4 hp pump. I installed a 4 element cartridge filter with about 3 times the element area and head pressure dropped to less than 5psi with the water shooting hard out the jets. Motor amps went down considerably.
