Awesome By Loren on 3/23/13Loren would recommend this product to a friendPlaced it in my sump, instant stop of the annoying humming. Even under the house, there is no more sound transfer to the floor!
Works Great!! By MadCityReefer on 3/21/13MadCityReefer would recommend this product to a friendDoes what it's supposed to do. I have a submersable pump but don't think it's safe to have it submerged in water so double wrapped it 2 heavy duty plastic fish bags...works well!!
Helps stop the noise, not so much the vibration. By Christian on 3/21/13Christian would recommend this product to a friendI bought this to silence my mag 7 pump. It helped alot with the noise, but I still have vibrational noise that I can hear.
I am going to try and work something else out, like maybe mounting suction cups to bottom to allow it to float a little bit, might also try some filter material underneath to allow less contact w/ the glass.
EXCELLENT By Buc_Nasty on 3/14/13Buc_Nasty would recommend this product to a friendI have an eheim 2262 - the mounting piece connecting the pump to the canister is TERRIBLE and was very noisy no matter how I adjusted it. I was so disappointed with the filter. I bought 15 of these to place under the entire canister thinking it might help.
Instead took off the mounting piece, placed two of these pads between the pump and canister, and the pump is now SILENT. I've read online how people say they literally cant tell if their 2262 is turned on or not, and I always thought they were just exaggerating, but its true with this modification - Its very hard to tell whether its turned on when your head is 2 feet from it.
I also placed 3 pads under the canister between it and my wood cabinet to dampen even more.
I could not be happier with these pads. They are obviously high quality and work very well.
bye bye vibration! By Arnel on 1/16/13Arnel would recommend this product to a friendI can definitely hear the difference when I have this pad under my return pump! I wish BRS has bigger pads!
Definitely worth $5 By Dan on 11/27/12Dan would recommend this product to a friendAlthough very small in size.. it does exactly what it's intended for.
A must buy By steve on 9/10/12steve would recommend this product to a friendThis product makes my reeflo a lot quiter. Thought it wouldn't bork because it was small but don't let that fool you. Great pad to have. Thanks BRS
simple and works By Chris on 9/1/12Chris would recommend this product to a friendIt does what it is suppose to do. I don't hear the pumps running or feel them. I did stack them for even less vibration and noise. Will definitely by in the future
spend your money on something else By REDSEA on 3/27/12REDSEA wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought 2 of these,i put one under my return pump, this thing absorbs the sound but not the vibration.nothing changed before or after. it's also small, I used silicone pad which absorbed way much noise and vibration than this thing. but it's water safe i used it for a month under the water with no bags and it still looks like brand new.

Can you use the sound dampening in water.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey James,
Great question. It is meant for external use.
by Jake on April 24, 2013, @2:35 AM
Are these safe for in-sump applications? Or are they only for external pumps?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jake,
They are made for external use.
by Sara on January 23, 2013, @11:52 AM
Are these pads aquarium safe? Or do i need to put them in a ziplock bag?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Sara,
They are intended for external use and we haven't tested them for use inside of the aquarium, although I have heard of people wrapping them or other methods similar to what you mention and using them in the tank.
by Nicholas on August 7, 2012, @9:50 PM
Can you give a couple examples of common use?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Nicholas,
They are almost always used to set underneath an external return pump. The pad goes between the pump and the stand/ground/whatever the pump is resting on and reduces the vibrations that transmit through. This can greatly reduce the noise generated.
These sound dampening pads work best with heavy external pumps where there is significant vibration being transferred from the pump to the surface the pump is mounted too. Made from foam pads with a ribbed rubber lining.
