I have accidentally run the pump dry! I'm SCARED! T.T, need advice

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I just received my mcp355 pump and I accidentally run the pump dry to test if it works or not. But, just now, I watched a video in youtube telling that you SHOULD NOT run your pump dry..I'm scared!Am I ruining my pump? T.T I'm so screwed!

It should be ok, as long as you didnt run it for a significant amount of time. It can handle some abuse but yea its not recommended.

Only way to find out for sure is to run the pump in your loop!

As long as it was only a few seconds and not minutes it will be fine.
