I installed an Aqua cal electric heat pump a few weeks ago and I am having a problem with it tripping the breaker.
Sometimes it will go a day without tripping sometimes only a few hours.

I had the electrician back out to look at it and he doesn’t see anything wrong. It’s wired with #6 wire and a 50 amp breaker.
Any ideas what I can check?

Have you discussed it with Aquacal?

Put a clamp on ammeter on the line and see what the HP draws at various times.

Yes this is brand new. I just spoke with them they recommended replacing the breaker, I’ll try that first.
