Suggestion/help for my canister filter

I added my live sand about 20 hrs ago so I don't mind the cloudiness but I don't think my filter is working properly.
There is pressure coming out into the water but not much at all...help!!!

You clog things up with the sand you just dumped in? Try taking it apart and cleaning it.

Yeah, you should just turn off the canister until all the fine particles settle.
