Water pump mounting question
DW has never been thrilled with the noise the water pump makes, especially at night.
I have upgraded the pump to one of Shurflows best models, added the flexible supply and demand hoses and finally am remounting the pump on rubber to deaden the vibration.
I bought an accumulator tank but then saw that it is not to be used with the model pump I have.
It is the mounting method I have a question about. The pump comes originally mounted on the rear metal wall of the wet bay. I made some rubber mounting pads thinking they would absorb some of the vibration but have not installed them as yet.
On reconsideration I began to wonder if I should mount the pump on the floor of the wet bay instead of the metal compartment wall. The floor is a thick composite material which might not transmit the vibration to the compartment walls and thus further reduce the noise.
I also have a rubber mat I use for the floor of the wet bay that is heavy enough that I might attach the pump to the rubber matting and let it just sit on the floor without actually screwing it through the composite material of the wet bay floor.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
