Re: What is the quietest fresh water pump?
If noise if coming from mounting ,try mounting pump on a separate panel and rubber mount that .
Actually, you can mount the pump on two lengths of 2" (non-wire reinforced) hose with the ends cut off on the diagonal and screwed/bolted to the sole. The flexibility of the hose will substantially reduce the "pounding" noise of the pump. One just needs ensure that the waterlines have enough slack on either side of the pump to flex without damage to the connections. In addition to checking the accumulator bladder, you might also check to ensure that your pressure switch is operating properly and not activating for an unnecessarily high pressure.
