Smile Water Pump Growl

We have had our 2006 FR Georgetown for about a year. During this time we always noticed the water pump makes a growling sound whenever the sink or toilet or any water need is used. When the water shuts off the pump shots off and the growling stops. My question is does anyone else have this? Is it a sign the pump is going out? Should we be concerned?

Thanks in advance.

Rich

you may want to look and see how they have it mounted . sometimes it could be set up against a panel or something similar causing excessive noise when running . make sure the mounting screws are tight also . not uncommon to have a pump make way more noise because of poor mounting A pressure tank will allow you to use some water with out the pump turning on all the time but once the tank is empty to the low psi point the the pump will run till you done with use and the tank fills back up
