comment Why does my circuit breaker trip with any small load, even after replacing the breaker?
Thanks. I ended up having an electrician rebuild the entire outdoor circuit breaker box from scratch with new equipment. It was more expensive than I wanted, but the previous setup seemed to have been done by the previous owner, not a qualified electrician. Since it's connected to a pool, I didn't want to take any chances.

comment How can I repair a slow leak in my concrete fountain?
I ended up using Quikrete and silicone. Note a long-term solution, but so far so good.

I opened the outdoor box and found some corrosion where the breakers connect. I cleaned some off and was able to power a 100W light, but still not my pool pump. I'll have to get a real electrician to rebuild the system properly. It turns out that the box is labeled "Indoors". sigh.
