    No rain in two weeks so city water kicks in but won't shut off there is a what l think is an electric so on the main line inside the complex and it feels warm to the touch also the pump breaker keeps tripping any direction would be appreciate any input as l am quite green at these systems.

    In all seriousness...

    You are going to need to ohm out the float switches, there may be a few for various reasons.

    Then find the valve and make sure it is operating correctly.

    The list of possible problems could be a few pages long, you might really think about passing it on to someone who has been there. When they show up to fix it, be their shadow and learn from it.
