My sump pump seems to be tripping my circuit breaker. I unplugged the pump and plugged it into another outlet on a different breaker and that breaker tripped. Is this common when the pump needs to be replaced? This will be the 3rd pump in less than 10 years and it doesn't run very often. It is connected to the utility sink in the laundry room and the downstairs bathroom. Neither is used frequently since my son moved out over 6 years ago. I've been doing some research and replacing the pump seems fairly straight forward. Are they any other things I need to look at before opening up the sump pump lid and taking out the pump? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
