Pump resonates through water line

I just completed replumbing my house with PEX and used the nail-on plastic mounts about every four feet where necessary. The main line coming from my pump conducts the pump's vibration and it creates a horrendous resonance in the floor of the living room above the crawl space. The problem does not continue past the pressure tank and an Aqua-Genie contol. Are there some type of "springy" hangers that could be used instead? My plumbing suppliers couldn't off a solution.
