hot tub 1.5hp motor on a wood deck
« on: December 08, 2009, 02:34:40 AM »
Hi, I need some advice on getting the hum from the hot tub motor (which is new) to be a little less loud.  The motor frame is sitting on four small pieces of rubber car heater hoses which are helping with noise reduction but when inside the house you can hear a hum like a loud fridge/freezer. 

Here is a pic of the motor (don't pay attention to what it is sitting on, the pic was taken before everything was set up)

this is a pic of the cabinet that sits beside the hot tub with the motor in it.  It is lined with 1.5" styrafoam

Line the box with our SSP foam mat 1" thick and seal the box the best you can.
