    Pump gf tripping

    My Haywood VSR Pump is tripping the gf but only intermittently. It's down this a dozen times in the last two months since the pump was replaced.. Haywood said pump should be wired directly to gf and not go through relay. Thoughts?

    Re: Pump gf tripping


    Welcome to TFP... A Great resource for all your pool questions..

    What else is being powered by the GFCI circuit breaker other than the pump?

    Should be nothing but the pump itself. If you are using that same CB to power other things, it can cause intermittent trips.

    Hayward is correct, the pump should be hard-wired to 220 VAC, it should not be controlled by a relay.

    Thanks for posting,

    VS pumps can cause nuisance tripping with some gfci breakers. Pentair has two breakers that are designed to work with VS pumps.
