What is the quietest fresh water pump?

Hi I have an older Shurflo diaphragm water pump that is pretty noisy. Which pumps do you find least noisy? Can the pump be enclosed into something to make less noise? I read somewhere that the reason for the noise may be due to over-tightening the mounting screws/bolts. My pump is hooked onto accumulator/bladder tank but the pressure does not last very long and pump starts after few seconds of water running on the tap. I am not too fussy about the accumulator/bladder tank so if a quieter pump is available without the need for automatic shut off I'd go for it. What others use?
