My circuit breaker keeps tripping without a load on it. I have a pool cover, a light, and sprinkler timer on the circuit. None of them run at the same time. Even if they do they still will not trip the circuit breaker. When you leave everything off it still trips the breaker, without anything on.

It could simply be a bad breaker. I used to be an apartment manager and on occasion we had to have them changed. It is also possible, since you noted you have them hooked to items associated with water, that you may have a short somewhere that is wet causing it to throw the breaker. In which case you need to find out ASAP before someone gets hurt. (05/24/2009)
Personally I wouldn't try to fix it without an electrician around me. One spark from a faulty breaker could burn down your whole house without you being there even. Hire an electrician for your family's and your safety. (05/29/2009)
