Starting and stopping pumps puts load on them. Over time it will wear them down more quickly than a constant run. Slow down your garavity feed with a vavle of some sort or pinch the hose or rather than statr and stop the pump,start and stop the gravity feed.
Can you show me a link or picture of the squeeze bulb? I really dislike the sucking idea
Do you think my gravity feed is going to out pace my return pump? My worry is the other way around.
