Default Shut down pump every night ?

Hello

I would like to know if it's good to shut down the pump (i have a Reserator) every night, to make the pump last longer and save electricity. Or maybe is it bad for the pump ?

Thanx

Yeah it's fine to shutdown the pump. I think most of us using AC pumps used to run a relay for this.

Why would you want to run the pump when it's not doing anything?
