use of silicon hump hose to connect pool pump to pvc pipe to reduce vibratons


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would like to reduce the amount of vibration from my pool pump, towards my concrete structure of the house to lower the noise.

 

I've bought already 5cm thick rubber-cork-blocks on which I plan to place the pump. The problem I expect is, that even when the pump is sitting on rubber blocks the vibration is still the same in the 2" PVC pipes which go to the water reservoir and filter, so that I'll still have the vibration there - or maybe even more once the pump is sitting on the rubber blocks. 

 

So I thought about using a hump hose which are used in boats and cars to reduce vibration, but they are normally attached to steel pipes where the clamps can be tightened super strong. I'm worried that they can just pop of the PVC and flood my basement.

 

Any experience, suggestions or thoughts why it's probably a bad idea?

 

Thanks,

Michael
