Booster Pump

I have a booster pump for a Polaris cleaner. Now that I bought a robot, I no longer need to use the pump. I plan on leaving the pump in the system and keep the Polaris cleaner as a backup in case the robot dies. Can a booster pump sit unused for possibly years or should it be run periodically?

I'm sure they're like anything else, leave it alone for too long and coming back to it won't be fun. just run it every once in a while

It will probably make a lot of noise if you run it without the Polaris attached (cavitation noise) but if you run it for less than a minute, it should be fine.
