Re: basement up flush tiliet.
Is this a grinder pump with float switch? Or is it built into toilet sump?
First in either case if you can identify the capacitor, get one and replace it, they wear out over time anyway. If that fixes it, you are done the easy way.
Many of these type motors are throw aways, and finding the switch, let alone getting it apart and replacing it is more trouble than buying a new motor if available.
If you are plumbed in, and have no other choice but major construction to replace an up toilet, we can attempt a repair at our shop, if that is against the rules here, sorry, but I know what a complicated and near impossible fix this might be, sometimes the motors are riveted together, so if you need help and want to mail it to me for an estimate, we are happy to take a quick look.

This sounds like a problem with the flow switch(es) that control the operation of the pump motor.
When the pressure decreases I assume that the pump has switched itself off - check this before going any further, but I will assume that this is the case. (If the pump is still running when the pressure decreases then you have a really strange problem and I would need to think again).
The pump motor is controlled by flow switches on the outlet side of the pump - when the shower valve is opened the flow of water activates a switch that supplies power to the pump motor. There will be one flow switch on the hot outlet from the pump and another on the cold outlet.
I assume that one or both of the flow switches is not operating correctly. This can be either a fault with the switch(es) or insufficient water pressure on the inlet side. Has anything changed that might have reduced the pressure on the inlet side of the pump? Have you moved the water tank that supplies the pump? (cold water storage tank)
If there is adequate pressure on the inlet then one or both of the flow switches is not working correctly. To further diagnose the problem try turning the shower valve to cold water only and test the operation of the pump, then turn it to hottest and test again.
If the pump operates correctly on cold only or hot only then the associated flow switch is OK, and the other one is faulty.
Replacing a flow switch is not difficult if you are reasonably handy, and I am happy to provide further help if you need it.
The service to your basement needs to be upgraded if you are going to run the heater and other electrical units. I would guess that you have a 15 amp line and need to upgrade it up to at least a 20 amp and with a 12 gauge grounded line. In the short term you may be able to get by using a heater that draws fewer amps.
This definitely sounds like your need to consult an electrician.
Assuming we are talking about a standard flush toilet, it sounds like the internal flush actuator lever is hitting the top of the toilet on the inside. Remove the lid, hold the exterior handle. and carefully bend the lever down a little. Also make sure the lever hasn't slipped or is loose. Put the lid back on try again. Repeat until the toilet flushes with the lid on.
The saniflo system uses 2 stages stage one works sorta like a garbage disposal it breakes up waste, stage two is a high flo pump. one fo these has gone bad meaning the motor has burned up and shorted the sparking in the breaker pannel you refered to. As far as I know theese systems are self contained so you will have to have the unit repaced here is a link to the website so you can find a dealer or installer near you http://www.saniflo.com/Default.aspx
Hope this helps.

First go to a motor repair shop or Neely Bearing shop and see if they can get a replacement battery, then post a picture of the motor and I will tell you how to repair or replace the bearing. I need to know the frame type, it's located on the motor tag and is it 110 or 220?
I don't know how high the water got but if only the burner was covered it is probably just dirt. Try replacing the thermocouple this is usually less than $10. If the gas valve itself was wet REPLACE THE WATER HEATER!!!!!!! Never trust a gas valve that has been wet!!!!! It can seem to work just fine but get stuck in the open position defeating all safety measures.
