German term or phrase: betriebsschonend
Isn't this a nice German term ;-)

Everybody knows what it means, but how to render it in English without writing an entire sentence...

Das betriebsschonende Ausschalten der Pumpe entnehmen Sie bitte der Betriebsanleitung des Hochdruckpumpenherstellers.

Thanks!
