My GTM Rossa is fitted with a Facet fuel pump and Filter King regulator and as I have only ever been used to the SU electric pump on various BL products, I have noticed that when energised, the Facet pumps fuel constantly; whereas, the SU would shut down when pressurised.

Is there an issue with my pump or is it just how it is, as it’s driving me nuts running constantly?

As Nick says, Facet pumps will pump continuously, if it buzzes you have an issue

Thanks all. That gives me peace of mind that it is working as it should - I was just concerned that it would flood the carb if I left the ignition on too long
