Electrical breaker trips after 3-5 seconds.

My electrical breaker to my irrigation system trips 3-5 seconds after pump starts. Was working fine for about three weeks. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

There is a short somewhere in the electrical side of the irrigation system.

Start by checking the ohms of all the valves, and checking to see if the relay to the pump is getting proper voltage
