When we travel, we use the RV pump quite a bit. But, it’s noisy! So, I had to do something. This is what I came up with. Final product would cost about $50 if bought by someone pieced out.

How about putting The Who,e assembly in a styrofoam cooler?… Put the lid on the floor as a vibration barrier and use the cooler as a cover
Thank you for the great video lesson.
I’m considering one of the SeaFlo 5.5 gpm 4 chamber pumps and an accumulator tank for my 5th wheel.
I know this is a old video and hope you get this message but my water pump noise is the bane of my existence!! (my wife says i'm obsessed and I agree LOL). what I ended up doing (besides a accumulator tank) was added pipe insulation (home depot) all over our rig (big 5th wheel) every place I could get to where the hard pex tubing rattled against wood and side walls. Made a huge difference (yeah got a silencing kit on it too)
Good video about a sore subject that comes standard with all RV's! I found an option that is easier to make and is quieter. Mounting a pump on any type of hard surface will create a resonating sound board that amplifies sound. Discard the piece of plywood and the open cell foam. Purchase a pool noodle at a dollar store for a couple of bucks. Cut a section of the noodle an inch or so longer than the base of the pump. Slit one side of the noodle through to its hollow core and spread it open. Mount the pump directly on top of the opened noodle using stainless steel wood screws that are long enough to pass through the base, the noodle, and into the floor. Tighten the screws only enough that they begin to slightly compress the foam. Pool noodles are made of closed cell foam and will not absorb water. My cheapo original equipment pump went from sounding like an unmuffled radial aircraft engine to one that you cannot hear at all!
Thank you for your excellent video in helping solve a common RV problem!
You should try stodoys instructions. You can try It and get your money back if you don't like it
I might try the foam . You think by now they would have developed quieter pumps.
i put mine inside a box lined with dynamat (used for soundproofing cars when good audio systems are installed…. silence! !!!
It is important that the accumulator tank be pressurized to the pump cut on pressure or no more than 2 psi below. (See http://shurflo.com/images/files/Marine_Product_Manuals/Water-System-Accessories/911-731.pdf). The "2 psi below" is the spec for residential pump tanks. Otherwise, the storage volume is reduced and the pump cycling is increased.
The trouble with a quite pump is you don't know when its running. I understand it can get annoying.
I live on a boat and if I have a leak in my fresh water system I know it by the pump cycling.
Sometimes nose is a good thing.
great Info !!! and good ideas thanks !!
Yes that pump is a bit load at first, The accumulator certainly has helped a bit ,but your Foam based part had the desired effect. Well done nice work
