Welcome to TFP.

What model automation panel?

Could be a bad breaker or could be an internal wiring problem.

Does the breaker open with the cell disconnected?

Post pics of the internal wiring of your panel.

I suspect you meant.. the low voltage breaker that controls my valves pops..

If so, it could be many things, but most likely one of your valve actuators is bad. Unplug the actuators from your automation and see if the breaker still pops..

Not sure what this would have to do with chlorine unless water is no longer going through your tab feeder or your salt system..

More details and a couple of pic of your equipment pad would help us a lot.
