The other big mod to make is to connect the pump to the plumbing with a length of stainless braided faucet supply hose. This isolates the pulses of the pump from the rigid pex piping.


Forget the above.
To eliminate the pulsing, install an accumulator tank like this

Actually I did both, the tank keeps the pump from running as much but doesn't help to quiet the pump when it does run, you need the flex line to isolate the hard pex piping from the pump.

NOTE: If you install a tank be sure to include a valve so you can isolate the tank when you winterize, otherwise you'll fill it with 2 gallons the pink stuff, similar concept to the HW heater bypass.

I would describe my pump noise as a humm not an earthquake. No vibrating walls just a steady hum coming from the pump
