I never gave it much thought myself until people started saying they thought the plumbed in machines were too loud with an empty water tank. Some people filled their tanks with water, some put oil on the water to stop evaporation, some thought about using Dynamat.
I filled mine with sand.
Dang quiet in comparison.
Or point out all the problems with my idea and suffer with your noisy machine ;p
It's not how you handle the good times, but the faith you keep in the bad that defines you.

I have not plumbed mine in yet... I will do this in the near future but even with a full tank of water - it is still loud and vibrates a lot! Much louder than my previous Silvia with the same exact pump.
I've though about using dynamat - anyone done this?
I'm thinking I might put small sand bags in the bottom in front of the pump to see if that helps.
If people have done things to quiet the Isomac - please post here
