shower pump

My shower pump is working but blowing the breaker when I turn it on. I don't see any bare wire or cracks so could that mean there is a short inside of the pump itself, and would the easiest solution just be to replace the pump?

Re: shower pump

If you are talking about the shower discharge pump check the pump intake for hair and other stuff it could be making it hard for the impeller to turn causing increased amp draw

Maybe. I depends on the type of pump. If it's the sort with a rotating shaft exposed to water then it may just be clogged with hair.
