Pool pumps are notoriously loud, so I’m not surprised you’re looking for ways to alleviate the noise. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do on your own property to block the neighbor’s pool pump noise.
You’ll have to talk to your neighbors about the noise and see if you can reach a compromise.
Whether you write, call, or talk to them in person, make sure you keep your tone polite and agreeable. There are several good solutions to the noise issue, such as getting noise-proof pool equipment housing or installing noise insulation on existing housing.
If you’re feeling generous, you can even offer to pay for half of it to sweeten the deal.
If you absolutely have to, you can threaten legal action. However, before doing so, check out your city’s “quiet hours” and see how many disciples the noise is during that time. Noise above 70 dB is considered disturbing and residential night limits are usually around 60 or 55 dB.
