12 volt pump question

If you had a Delavan Fatboy 7870 "demand" (not bypass) 12 volt pump which is rated at 7.0 gpm and 100 psi could you install a bypass pressure regulator? I realize this would cause the intermittent duty pump to run continuous, but aside from the overheating issue, could it be done? Hose from tank to pump inlet, then on the outlet side of the pump installing a Tee. One hose going to the reel, the other going back to the tank. On the bulkhead at the tank, a pressure regulator and gauge.

What are the issues aside from overheating the pump that is made for intermittent duty?
