I removed water from underneath. Not much in there. The main electrical box dry inside. Motors to pumps dry although the power cords were laying in water. Fuses on circuit board are good. I replaced the GFI in the control panel and it still trips. I unplugged each pump one at a time, and it still trips. I am stumped.

I would try disconnecting both power leads going to your heater and then try running your pumps and see if it holds.

MaryH, that did it. The terminals looked a bit corroded so I cleaned them, reconnected the leads and it tripped again. Bad heater?

If it is not tripping and all other component are running with heater disconnected and not tripping breaker then yes sounds like your heater is shorting out and needs to be replaced.
