Soundproofing pool pump noise
« on: January 26, 2002, 03:27:09 AM »
My neighbor's pool pump is approximately 8 ft from my lanai. The constant hum is a real nuisance.  We considered a cinderblock wall but are not sure it will accomplish sufficient noise abatement. Any suggestions about sound proof enclosures?

We have the same problem.  The constant hum is very annoying.  It penetrates our house.  We are trying to get them to build a wall around it with fiberglass insulation to abate the noise.  Accoustical engineers say that should work but no definite data is available.
