Pool Pump Soundproofing
You’ve spent the entire summer swimming, diving and splashing, only to get complaints from your neighbors. Although the sound might not annoy you, a pool pump works at all hours of the day to filter water for a crystal clear appearance. If your outdoor pool pump has a loud motor, Soundproof Cow has numerous pool pump soundproofing solutions to keep your property silent.
Why Is My Pool Pump Noisy?
Your pool’s filtration system consists of several moving parts. Depending on your pool’s depth and size, your installation might call for a high-powered motor and impeller to facilitate the cleaning process. As your pool pump sucks in water to remove bacteria, leaves and other particles, plastic pieces and connections vibrate excessively.
Pool pumps are usually mounted on concrete. The surfaces around your pool have trouble absorbing soundwaves coming from the main assembly. This setup quickly leaves room for concern if your neighbors are fans of peace and quiet.
How to Soundproof an Outdoor Pool Pump
The pool pump soundproofing process looks different based on your setup, but a few general rules apply to all property owners. First, you can reduce sound transmission to your neighbor’s yard by building a small enclosure around your pool pump assembly. Measure the dimensions of your pool pump and construct a box out of plywood or fiberboard to close off the installation on all sides. You’ll want to leave enough room for various connections and cut holes in the enclosure for airflow.
Adding pool pump soundproofing materials to the inside of your enclosure can stop soundwaves dead in their tracks. Some of our best-selling products outlined below are ideal for your backyard project.
Vibra Block® Sound Deadening Material
Vibra Block® products by Soundproof Cow are engineered for peel-and-stick application. Cut strips to match the walls of your noisy pool pump enclosure to see immediate results. Vibra Block® strips stick to virtually any material, ranging from steel to wood. Custom shapes and sizes are available when you speak to a representative at Soundproof Cow.
Quiet Barrier™ Soundproofing Composites
Looking to line your pool pump enclosure with a flexible material that fits any shape and surface? Soundproof Cow’s Quiet Barrier™ Soundproofing Composites limit the amount of sound that can leave a given space. A soundproofing membrane and polyurethane foam layers do an excellent job of blocking the transmission of high-decibel sounds from moving through the neighborhood. You can cover the inside walls of your plywood or fiberboard box, as we offer composite materials in multiple thicknesses.
Quiet Board™ Water Resistant Panels
Some outdoor pumps are installed within pool huts and sheds. If you have a designated space for filtration equipment, consider our Quiet Board™ Water Resistant Panels for your walk-in structure. Fasten panels across walls and ceilings to trap pool pump vibrations when entry doors are shut.
Our Quiet Board™ offerings are washable and moisture resistant, making them ideal for aquatic environments. Cannonball as close to the pool hut as you like without worrying about panels degrading. Cut panels to size using a serrated knife for a clean look. Select Quiet Board™ products are available in 1- and 2-inch thicknesses to absorb 50% of airborne sound. Quiet Board™ panels are impact resistant for maximum durability.
