Water Pump Assist

I am currently in a CG that has really low water pressure. Will it hurt the pump to leave it on to assist and give me better water pressure?

Don't want to burn out my pump

TIA

I'd bet that the CG water pressure is still above the cut-in pressure of your pump. But regardless, the pump will only run on demand so it should be no problem.

When/if it does kick in it will be using water from the FW tank.

My rig specifically says you can leave it on if you desire. We have done so many times when it is cold and need to take in the hose at night to prevent freezing.
