Sorbothane Vibration Damping Sheet Stock (12 x12in)

Product Review (submitted on December 11, 2017):
I used this as an isolation base below a new pool pump. The pool equipment at my house is located right outside the master bedroom wall and anytime the old pump switched on the thrum was easily noticeable. It was something you could tune out if the pump was on 24/7, but distracting with each switch on. The pump was an older single speed model, so I upgraded the pump to a variable speed model and cut this pad to fit below it. The new pump has less vibration to begin with so its may not be a fair comparison. This product does seems to help. You can place your hand on the pump and feel its vibrations, but less so on the concrete pad. Certainly on the lowest two speed settings the pump is inaudible inside, which was my goal. I am not sure of this product's durability outside with pool water so I will update this if there is degradation.
