I like a potable pump that I can hear. That way you know if a tap is dripping and can deal with it before you potable supply gets pumped overboard.

Coming the marine trades and such, this was a constant worry. More than once, sitting in the main cabin someone would hear the potable pump rattle and jump up to find the errant tap.

I also like to hear the water pump run. That burp when there is a slow leak someplace saved a bathroom floor recently. Also turning the pump on after being gone for a while and hearing nothing is a good feeling.

Now rattling water pipes just have to be quieted somehow. Been there, done that also.

That is another reason It doesn't bother me. Nice to know that if you hear it running there is an issue.

If you are fit enough and got the urge might be able to make a separate mounting board mounted it self with big thick rubber bushings to structure and then mount the pump to it with bit thick rubber bushings and a loop in the hoses on both sides of the pump. Don't let them ump anything either
