Same experience here, with it being loud. I stuffed a little insulation in the cavity to mufffle it. That helped a little bit. It is ridiculous that the trailer has all these noise issues! Water pump, Fridge fan and converter fan all very loud stock new. If I ruled the world things would certainly be different.

Capt,

The mounts I used,(pictured), were for mounting an electric fuel pump, something saved from my knuckle busting daze. The male mount screws on both ends required an extra mount block under the water pump.

If I was doing it again I would use a soft rubber base mount,, (the new one listed in this link), it can be mounted directly to the existing platform.

More info

Thanks for the link Bob. The site talks about an "e-store" but it does not look like they sell online. Now that I know what I'm looking for I will try and find a source online.

Thanks again

Cheers
Doug

B the way. Does anyone have a recommendation for an accumulator?

Thanks
Doug

I installed one of these in my Safari. It worked flawlessly for 15 years. Google, "accumulator tank, Home Depot ".

8.5 in. W x 11.5 in. D x 8.5 in. H Pre-Pressurized Steel Water Expansion Tank.

I stuffed it up under the sink. Jim

Thanks bob - I will look into it today and get something ordered. I see there is two different sizes with that product. Any advise on what one to order? Right now I'm assuming bigger will be better?
Thanks

Doug

I have the Shurflo accumulator tank under my kitchen sink mounted vertically next to the Delta water filter. The instructions state you can place it anywhere on the plumbing system and this is the only place that was easily accessible for mounting and for winterizing. I patched it in with a T fitting. I don't think it makes my Flojet any quieter, all it does is delay when the pump starts up to build the pressure back. I can usually do a short flush and the pump won't come on. The Flojet documentation advises an accumulator is not necessary. When the pump is on and needs to build pressure it seems to take longer than what a remember before installing the accumulator.

I don't think I could put those rubber feet on my pump. It would raise the pump to where the inlet hose might not connect correctly. The Floject has clip in connections, not screw in connections. The output side is a flexible hose. Not sure if that was standard or the previous owner had it installed. My water pump is partially under the fridge and closet a real pain to get to. I can't see how I could work on the PEX pipe using the required tools to crimp new fittings if I decided to make modifications to the pump's location.

I've also wrapped foam pipe insulation around some of the PEX pipe in the water pump area to pipe that are rubbing each other or laying against other plumbing. I little bit is on the pipe going to the toilet.

I have the same issue with my 27ft EB. Called Airstream dealer. He said just get some antifatigue foam mat or something similar and mount it to the floor using that. I haven't done it yet, but will here in the near future.

Another thing to note, check your shower water filter. If it is dirty it might make the pump constantly have to run. There is a video on YouTube on how to check it. Hope this helps.

Cheers, Ryan

Our pump was noisy because the pipes were slaping against the side of the trailer. I attached a two foot long rubber tube to a can of rigid poly urethane insulating foam and shot foam in around the pipes where I couldn't reach. That cured it about 80 percent, then I added an accumulator. It's quiet now.

Picture.

Hi, here is a picture of my water pump with my home made flex hoses and my accumulator. It is very quiet and works very well.

Airstream designed your water pump access wrong. The pump should be further back in an out of the way place covered with heater ducts, PEX plumbing and wiring. I wish my water pump access was like yours. I have to unscrew and access panel in the cabinet under my fridge to get to my water pump.

On our 25' Eddie Bauer, the water pump sounded like a 36" concert bass drum with a long roll being played on it.

Turns out the pump was screwed directly into the floor in the area under the hallway closet. I loosened the 4 screws holding the feet to the floor. Lifted it slightly, and slid a $2.00 black mouse pad under it and then screwed the feed back down through the mouse pad. Now, the pump is almost silent. You have to listen carefully to hear it.

A $2 mouse pad as an isolation mat. Why couldn't AS simply do this simply thing when assembling?
