As a test move the pump to another 20 amp breaker.

I can tell you that punctuation certainly makes posts easier to read.

What is the make and model number of the pump ?
Are you running it on 120v or 240v ?

The running amperage of the motor needs to be checked to see if it's close to nameplate rating.
