I just got a series of Aquatherm rooftop solar panels installed last week. I have a natural swim pond, so the only piece of equipment I had initially was a Hayward Super Pump VS, tapcon'd into a concrete slab. There wasn't really any noise noticeable inside the house (it's mounted outside right next to my living room wall). Last week I got solar, so we added a sand filter, and all the plumbing required to feed the water up to the roof. The guy bolted all the plumbing directly to the house with plastic clips etc. Long story short, now even without the water diverting to the solar, I can hear the pump much louder than before. It's very annoying and almost sounds like someone is vacuuming all day outside. I was reading online and people mentioned it's likely the vibration through the plumbing, so I tried using a 2" rubber coupler, and the noise died down a bit, but there's still a long way to go...and I have zero faith in that coupler. So much that today I turned the solar on, jacked the pump up to full speed and the pressure blew the coupler. If that was to happen while i'm not home it would pump all the pool water right to the side of my house...
I'm looking for people's opinions on what I could do. I can hear the water going up and down the wall but that doesn't really bother me as much as the pump noise coming into the house all day. I have attached a few pics... any help is appreciated! Don't mind the bales of hay... low budget temporary sound deadening for the neighbor
