Is there anything else on the same breaker? Is that the proper amperage for the pump? How long has the pump been in service? It may need to be cleaned as possible obstruction causing too much strain.

In all liklihood, your problem is a breakdown in the insulation of the heating element. The elements tend to be mineral insulated then metal jacketed. Once you get a bit of corrosion on the jacket and a little water gets into the mineral powder, it's insulation properties fall off sharply, shorting out the power supply.
There are two practical ways of testing this:
The pro way of doing it is to borrow a high voltage insulation tester, disconnect the power leads from the element and check the resistance between one of the elements terminals and the jacket. Treat anything less than a megohm as a failure requiring replacement of the element. (nb. This is one of those rare cases where you need to use a proper insulation tester - an ordinary multimeter often fails to find this problem)
The alternative is just to replace the element and see how much difference it makes.

Sounds like your controller has sustained damage. You need to have a professional inspect it to determine what has gone wrong.

A breaker trips if it getting feedback. Feedback can be caused by water or a crossed wire, or an electrical component failure. You said it's pumping water on the ground so the pump is working. Then if you put it back in it trips, so you pump isn't able to push the water to where it has to go and therefore your getting a pressure buildup which falls back on the pump sensors and stops it before you blow up something, it is saving you from disaster of property or personal injury, this is a good thing. You have a clog in your pipes or you have a valve that is closed that shouldn't be, but it's the back pressure that is blowing the breaker I think. I take it it is on an isolated circuit in your house and isn't sharing anything else that could be drawing to much on that circuit. Anything electronically new in your house? I don't think it's electrically related just asking.
