Do you mean the circuit breaker on the fuse box or the electronic pump protection system that should be present to protect your submersible pump?
You said "trips the breaker" which is *not* the same thing I'm talking about, but, FWIW I had a similar problem with the electronic control that turns the pump off if the well runs dry. I became aware of the problem when my 3500-gal holding tank was at only 30 percent of capacity instead of topping off whenever a few hundred gallons had been drawn. I bypassed the switch and the pump ran fine; i.e. the well wasn't dry, and the pump worked. I sat there next to the tank monitoring water flow for a half hour before deciding that the problem was not the pump or the level of the water table. I followed mfr's directions to reset the electronic caibration control with a tiny little screwdriver (basically resetting the control circuit then turning the screw *just* till the pump kicks on). Then I sat there for another couple hours making sure everything went OK while my pump and well refilled the 2500 gal missing from my reservoir.
Hope this helps.
