    Pool Pump starts runs for about 20 seconds then shuts off

    My pool pump starts, runs, primes, fills skimmer basket with water, then shuts off, but the breaker does not trip. Water stays full in filter basket, but pump is off. I have checked for leaks, no leaks. I have put a screw driver into the pump opening from the basket area to see if any debris had it clogged and nothing appears to be in there. It sounds a little louder than it used to. This just happened within a couple days, so i have just shut off the breaker.

    Welcome to TFP.

    What pump do you have?
    Is it on a timer or automation system?
