Most water pump noise is not the water pump but vibration of the mounting system.

You can do things like relocating your pump and use softer hoses to connect..

But.. I would rather have the simple Solution I have from factory.. Your call.

Also,'you could mount the pump to some rubber mounts...to space the pump from the deck.
Peace and Blessings..

Mine sits on carpet. I can just hear it hum a bit. It is far from offensive.
