Using a mouse pad to dampen pump noise?

I’ve read that you can use a generic neoprene mouse pad under a return pump to quiet things down. I currently have a wad of filter pad under my Mag 7 but I’m concerned that it might produce nitrates eventually. Is a mouse pad better for this purpose?

Thanks!

i bought some silicone pot holders from walmart to use under my mag 9.5 return and mag 12 skimmer pump. they work great!

just silicone small little dabs on the bottom of the pump.. voila! silicone feet to dampen the sound.

Thats a good tip! the type with the bumps? I might even have an extra one in the kitchen!
