humming pump

My new 50 gallon tank is quite noisy. My new eheim 1260 pump is humming quite bad. At the moment it is out of the water piped to my sump. Do you think it would be quieter if I were to plumb it up in the sump under water.

Do you have an isolation pad under it?
If not try sticking an old mousepad under it to see if that helps.

Well I plumbed it up in the water and hardly any noise at all.
