Hello,

My name is Billy.

This is a sign of a dead short. It could be a wiring or circ pump issue.

Unfortunately in this venue I can only direct so much...but this is a critical failure and should be addressed as soon as possible.

A dead short to ground with water based appliances must be thoroughly checked.

If you choose to troubleshoot yourself let me know and if you have a meter that can measure resistance
