Yeah the video really needs a reference point in order to make the noise level more relatable. It is pretty quiet though.

To vibration isolate a pump just use some pieces of rubber to separate the pump housing from the case. Basically you don't want any part of the reservoir to be directly touching the case.

So I could just get some noise isolation or rubber "stuff" to put around it so that it doesn't vibrate? Do you know of anything that I could use for this?

Basically any type of rubber or thick foam. After you have installed it you can test it's effectiveness by shaking the reservoir. If it rattles against the case at all, you need to re-do your noise isolation. If you can't hear anything you're good to go.

Rubber washers works well, plastic screws would be better than metal ones. If you have any of the sides coming in contact with the case you could add thin pieces of rubber to dampen the vibration. Vibration shouldn't be too much of an issue though as the water will help to block vibrations.

Do you guys think that these would work to help keep the pump/res from vibrating?

Sweet!

Grand total for the loop + case is going to be just over $600. Ouch!

Totally worth it for me though.
