If you are disturbed by the noise made by your pool, you must first find the source of the noise before looking for the solutions.
Picture yourself lazing in the sun listening to a concert of birdsong... without the incessant thrum of the plant room! It's true that the sound emissions of an operating pool play a significant role in long term comfort both day and night. First and foremost let's remember that great progress has been made in this area, for both pumps and heat pump. If you are disturbed by the noise made by your pool, you must first find the source of the noise before looking for the solutions.
If the pool is in the house (indoor pool) or very close to it, it is highly likely that the plant room is too. But even with an outdoor pool, noise levels may be too high. The first question: what type of noise are we talking about? A pool may generate noise from hydraulic (circulation in pipes), mechanical, electrical (motor), air handling (ventilation and cooling), or any other equipment. Step one is to identify the source.
With Hayward's TriStar® VSTD variable speed pump or MaxFlo XL™ VSTD variable speed pump, you make substantial energy savings, but your acoustic comfort will also increase significantly. Indeed, variable speed pumps run continuously at a slower speed: water therefore circulates more slowly through the pipes. Paired with a cartridge filter, it provides highly effective filtration. Top tip: avoid installing your variable speed pump on a concrete block as this will resonate..
If you want to minimise the noise your pool makes when operating, opt for a "Full Inverter" heat pump. Hayward's EnergyLine® Pro Fi model offers slower operation for a super-silent "night" mode. Since the heat pump constantly adapts to outdoor conditions, there are no fits and starts and noise emissions are therefore reduced.
