If you are trying to qiet the pump try installing a cheap mouse pad under the pump. This buffers the sound and vibration.

I have a plumber buddy who gave me several vibration damping squares used to mount AC air handlers and compressor units. I plan on using those in my installation. I was just waiting for a break in the camping schedule to do the work.

Dick you are 100% right - I just lowered the pressure to 28PSI and it performs well. It does improve, the pump starts less often - now I can really feel the difference.

I read on the tech data sheet for the classic pump that it is preset to 25 (on) and 40PSI (off) (+- 5)

Thank you so much.

Denis

I let you camper work out the pressure to set for accumulator. One of the good thing about the accumulator is that it help control water expansion , when water heater is doing it thing,reducing high water line pressures. It help stop the T&P valve for leaking.

Glad you Fellows figured the pump-tank out

Have thought about it (installing tank), Now that a mix of RV scientist and engineers have figured out everything for me, now I can complete my project


Thanks fellows!

Glad we could help.

That is what these discussion boards are all about: knowledge transfer.

Fantastic.
