I have lived in my house for 4 years now and summer is my favorite time of year. I love to play outside in the yard with my 3 year old and have meals on our deck. My neighbor's above ground pool filter runs very loud. I know loud is subjective...but to the point where I go outside and I want to come back in again!
My neighbors did have the filter coming on during the middle of the the day or in the middle of the night which was a great schedule and I didn't mind that all as during the week I was at work and on the weekends usually busy during the day. Now it is on at dinner time and into the evening for about 4 hours and in the morning around breakfast time for around 4 hours....the times we like to sit or be outside!
I don't want to offend my neighbors or upset them but is there any way I could broach the subject diplomatically with them..and ask if they could program the filter to run in the middle of the night when everyone is sleeping or mid-day again when most people aren't around?
Otherwise I was thinking of suggesting to them that I could buy them a new quiet pool filter. How much would that cost? Honestly if it meant the noise would no longer would be there it would be money well spent for me!
