Pump is tripping circuit
My pump (inherited from last homeowners) has been making a noticeable whirring noise for a few months now, but I could never find anything that was wrong with it (no blockages that I could see) and the water flow was fine. Saturday night, I noticed that the pump shut off. I went to check on it and noticed that the GFI electrical outlet had been tripped and I had to reset it. Once I reset it, it tripped again within minutes. It doesn't sound like the pump is working extra hard and I haven't had this problem before. Can someone please help? There is also a large frog living right near the pump but he has been there for many months now and has never caused a problem. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I thought I would try to state as many details as possible. Has anyone else had a problem where their pump keeps tripping the circuit? The pump has been running for about 2 or 3 years without any problems. Thank you for any light you can shed on my problem!
