, my pool circuit breakers keep tripping after the pool

Customer Question

Customer: Hello,
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: my name is Rudy. my pool circuit breakers keep tripping after the pool pump or pool cleaner starts when in the auto mode through the Compool. i had to re-program the start times to "0" start time on both. the breakers do not trip when I start manually with the compool.

I apologize for the holiday delay.

Do you still need assistance?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I do still need help. I have a Compool controller for my pool. I can program the main pump to come on and off as well as the pool sweep/cleaner. I noticed that my circuit breakers kept tripping. I could reset them and everything works when I run them manually just turning them on through the Compool. So, I decided to try something and take the both main pump and pool cleaner off program so they would not turn on in auto mode. And they work fine. And the freeze protection works also along with automation of the actuator valves. So, I feel it is something that when in the program mode and the motors start up that is tripping the breakers. Please let me know your thoughts.
Thank you,
