One circuit breaker is for the pool filter, it was working fine and now it keeps tripping. I unplugged the filter and it is still tripping?
What is wrong with it?

Although breakers can go bad, it isn't very common. Chances are good that there is something else on the circuit that you don't know about that is causing the problem. Look for something else that isn't working when the breaker is tripped, check receptacles with a good lamp to see if you can find ones that don't work.
Our pool only has 3 wires going in, 2 hots and a neutral, there is no ground. It was working fine with a regular breaker, then someone pointed out that it needed to be a GFCI breaker. Anyways, I installed it and as soon as you set power to anything it trips. We bought a 30 amp 220 GFCI and a 20 amp 120 DFCI. When you undo the pigtail wire that comes on it it works, but that defeats the purpose.
