Will the Simple Pump motor be damaged if I pump air?

Yes, when pumping air, the seals will become dry and start to wear. In the extreme, the piston could even start scratching into the precision-machined pump cylinder, rendering it, well, no longer precision-made.

If you are pumping and the water stops flowing, just stop and let the well fill back up.
