In general, how far do people recommend having pool equipment in relation to patio/entertaining space? We are thinking about moving our equipment from a location literally in the middle of our yard approximately 25 feet behind the pool (unsightly fenced in box), to either the HVAC location next to the house or closer to the side of the lot still behind the pool. The HVAC location is currently 8-10 feet away from the patio and pool deck, it also shares a brick wall with our family room. Generally are people concerned with the sound level of the pool equipment? (Sand filter/heater/pump/etc)
We have had mixed reviews from pool builders regarding whether this would be an issue or not.
