Sillicon mat By John on 6/24/2018John would recommend this product to a friendWhen I saw this on a vid - I thought it might quite the pumps a bit - Boy O' Boy was I wrong - This really is really the super quite trick of all!!!
Just buy it. By Gregory on 7/9/2017Gregory would recommend this product to a friendYes, it works. Yes, it's totally worth it. Just buy it. Buy it for anything that could be making a hum/vibration. You won't regret it.
Wine Glass Drying Mat By Sbappe on 8/21/2016Sbappe wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is a wine glass drying mat or something like that. Said it right on the packaging haha. Made me laugh. I'm not really sure if it's helping or not on my external pump but I do like it because if there are any small seeping leaks in my future, the ribs will kind of help contain them if I don't catch it right away. It's cheap enough but could have probably found something at the dollar store for less that would have provided me with the same results since my pump is external and not worried about leeching or anything.
skimmer silencer By Jim on 3/21/2016Jim would recommend this product to a friendUsed as directed under my skimmer, it made a big difference in the noise in my system
Perfect Solution By Jeffrey on 2/18/2016Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friendI ordered a few of these in different sizes, and could not believe the difference! No more buzzing, humming...in fact, I can't even HEAR my return pump anymore and it's running at about 500 GPH. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I now have them in all 4 of my tank return pumps, skimmer, reactor pump. If you don't have this, and have ever thought your pump was kind of loud...buy it.
Great product! By Marty on 6/27/2015Marty would recommend this product to a friendJust installed One of the silicone mats under the 3 pumps in my wet dry filter sump, and I could not believe the difference it was amazing. Thanks for the video you have on your website.
Works great! By Benjamin on 4/21/2015Benjamin would recommend this product to a friendWas easy to cut to fit under my return pump in the sump. The pump wasn't loud to being with, but this did reduce some vibration which did make some noise. I imagine if your pump vibrates a lot and creates a lot of noise, this would help a lot.
Good Density for vibration reduction By Jim on 3/8/2015Jim would recommend this product to a friendI bought the small (17'' x 6''). It was big enough to place under my INS135 skimmer/pump with enough left over to place under my return pump. It made a noticable difference in noise level of both.
Can this be used to wrap around a dish washer?
Unfortunately not, it is very small and meant to fit a small pump on it.
What size are the small, large?
The dimensions are
Small Vibration Silencer: 17'' x 6'' x .25''
Large Vibration Silencer: 16.9" x 12.5" x 0.25"
Are they easily cut to custom fit?
Is this Safe to Put inside of a Sump? (i.e. under the return pump?)
It sure is!
