new pool pump runs hot in backwash

Postby mikey » Tue 04 Jul, 2006 18:45

we just purchased a new one hp pump. when I try to backwash my filter system the pump runs hot and trips the breaker. I have to wait until the pump cools off in order to run it. it runs fine in filtering. Any one else have this problem? i'm frustrated
