|How long should you leave the pump running a small fountain? Does it need to run 24/7 or can you run it intermittently?
|Most pumps will run 24/7 without problem. However, they will wear out sooner. If you do not have fish in the water, you don't need to run the pump all the time. I have a small fountain in my front patio; I flip the switch on in the morning and turn it off at night. It's convenient. You could do the same.|
