I just had a pool built and yesterday was the first day they fired up the equipment to run overnight for shock, etc and I have to say this thing is LOUD - like I can hear it in almost any room of my 2600sqft single story home loud. I asked the pool builder about it and they said that it is normal, but i'm not so sure. If it is indeed normal, what can I do to mitigate the noise? It's located between a cinder block wall and my living room window, about 20' from the spa. It's a Hayward SP 3220EE, and according to the marketing it's supposed to be quiet but I guess that's relative?
I've attached pics of the plates on the pump and motor and here's a link to a youtube of what i'm hearing all day: https://youtu.be/i7CYlt4PfSk
