Well pum noise
Posted by Gordon Clark on January 13, 2003 at 16:16:21:
I have recently completed a home that utilizes a well for fresh water. The pump motor is submerged at about 100'. There is approximately 150 to 175 feet of black plastic tubing connecting the well and the house. I was schocked that I could hear the well pump when it comes on. Since the transition into the house is under my bedroom the humming and vibration is very noticable and even objectionable at times. I have not inspected the piping as yet but suspect that I will find it rigidly mounted to the floor joice. Should this be suspended like an automotive tail pipe with runbber hangers or is there a way to isolate the connection to the house? Any input would be appreciated.
