I've got a 2 year old Hayward pump that has worked like a champ. Opened the pool 5 days ago and it has been running smooth. Last couple of days it's been raining. This morning when I went to go check things out the pump was off. I noticed that the outlet it's plugged into needed to be reset. So I pushed in the reset button, but it immediately tripped again (i.e. the reset button popped out). It kept doing it each time I tried.
To make sure it was the pump causing this, I unplugged the pump and hit reset. All was fine. I then plugged in my dolphin robot...that worked fine as well. Then I plugged in the pump again, and immediately the reset button popped out and everything turned off.
I imagine it must have something to do with the rain?!?! Do you guys agree? I know very little about electric lines, so... Any advice other than letting it dry out and then covering it up in the future?
