The trick with Facet pumps is to not use the square body pumps but to use
the cylindrical Bendix style Facet pump.  It is more expensive but much
quieter and is extraordinarily reliable.  I've put one on my A90 (which
originally used a mechanical pump), it it had performed flawlessly.  I've
mounted the pump on the chassis using facet rubber bobbins and that reduces
the noise to a very acceptable level... just enough to know if the float
bowls are overflowing or not.
