Experts..please help! We have a water pump to boost the pressure on our hot water. Cold water fine. Current water pump is a Watermill model PC55SLV-B. We find it too noisy. Can anyone suggest/recommend a quiet substitute? We are getting stressed! Other people in house run tap for long periods. Even info on what type of pump we need would be great as seen pumps for the cold water or for a shower but don’t think that’s what we want? Many thanks for any help....I’m not technical but the way. :(

all pumps are noisy especially if not properly installed.
seated on a concrete slab with rubber feet, sound proofing around pump and free of rubbing against pipes etc should be first inspection as to eliminate the need for a new pump.
