Lights flickering after circuit breaker install

10 years ago

Hoping for some advance from the experts. I recently added a new 15A circuit breaker to my panel as a dedicated line for the sump pump in my basement. I felt everything went well. As I walk throughout the house now, many of the lights flicker every few minutes. These lights are on a few different breakers. I'm thinking I need to make sure all connections are tight on the bus bars. Also, the ground and nuetral wires on connected on the same busbar slot for each breaker. I connected the new breaker's nuetral and ground a few open slots below the nearest connected slot. Do you think that might cause the flicker?

Thanks for your help!
