First time pool owner. Sorry for this strange question.
This is a 5 year old house with a swimming pool in the backyard. We recently opened the pool, and set up pool pump running 10 hours a day. Pool pump is about 30 ft away from the house and sits on a concrete block. Pool is between the pump and the house.
Strange enough, when I am in the basement while the pump is running, I can tell pool pump is on. It is particarly clear while in the middle of the basement. It is like a low frequency compressor noise. Not loud, but it is there. Turn off the pool pump, the noise is gone.
I put my ear against the some exterior and interior walls, you can hear the humming noise clearly while the pump is on. Anyone can pinpoint how to rectify this?
- Air leak?
- Excessive vibration? (Pump itself is not loud. When I stand next to it. I can feel ground vibrate a little. Talk to the pool boy, who said it is perfectly normal.
Thanks so much.
