Am I guessing correctly that your site has a fresh water hook-up and that's what you're indicating that you shut off?
If you have a city water connection at the site, the water pump isn't required as it only pumps from the fresh water tank. If the city water has sufficient pressure and the water system has no leaks, the water pump shouldn't run as it's a pressure demand pump. If the water system pressure does drop, the pump will start and run continuously as it has no water to drawn from. If it does run, it probably won't hurt the pump, but it may shorten it's expected life.
