Title: Which products to soundproof our new hot tub?
Post by: knievel on April 15, 2012, 03:25:35 PM
Hi, looking for some advice on soundproofing our hot tub. It is a fiberglass shell type tub that I have so far only built a 2x4 frame around.

First issue is it's sitting on a wood deck, which is sitting on a cement pad attached to our house.
The motor is vibrating and it's traveling into the house with a loud hum.
I did throw a rubber mat under it and it went away for a day or 2 but it's back. So I need the proper fix for that.

Second issue is just general water/air noises coming from the underside of the tub itself.
So I would like to wrap the frame in something to deaden that before I attach the outer skirt. Will probably be strips of cedar.

Thanks in advance.

Ok, for these type projects you will need to decouple from the structure and add foam mat to the skirt and fill any areas with absorption if possible.
