I had an old TV wall mount that used a "French Cleat" type of mounting. I just drilled holes in the TV side to mount the pump and then mounted the wall side to the wall of the wet bay where the old pump was mounted. There is a screw for TV mounts that you put in to lock the two pieces together so they don't bounce out, which would be very difficult to do but I put the screw in anyway. Using this type of mounting works for lots of things and allows easy removal and installation which for a water pump is desirable. The old water pump was only held on by 2 of 4 screws cause the other 2 were hard to reach so that in itself made me lean towards another way to mount the new one since I couldn't reach the other 2 screw holes either. I've also hung pictures and a mirror using similar mounts that slip into each other like a "French Cleat" but lock in place so no side to side movement. Type in flush mount hangers and the hillman brand are what I'm talking about. Hope this helps.
