Sound Proofing a Hot Tub
« on: June 09, 2003, 04:54:26 PM »
I recently installed a hot tub that is about half-recessed though my deck. My neigbours house has a basement window approx. 12 feet away. I want to reduce the noise that my neighbour hears as much as possible. I am thinking of installing a wall/fence between the tub and  the window for privacy and to reduce noise.
What material would be best for this, and be durable( I live in Ontario)?
Thanks for your help

Jim

Jim,

A masonry fence would definitely be your best bet. Concrete and brick in conjunction with the mortar make an excellent soundproofing fence. Jim, make sure the fence is at least 8' tall if it is less than that it won't be nearly as effective. Thanks for the post.
