How to find the quietest swimming pool heater on the market

When you’re finally able to relax by the pool, the last thing you want is to be bothered by a buzz of your pool heater.  The only sound you’ll welcome is the gentle tumbling of ice cubes melting in your drink!

So which pool heater is the quietest on the market?  You relax by the pool while we crunch the numbers.

As you know, decibels (dB) are used to measure sound. To understand how quiet heat pumps are, it’s worthwhile knowing what the decibels are for familiar sounds.  For example:

  • Leaves rustling is 20 dB
  • A whisper is 30 dB
  • A quiet library is 40dB
  • A dishwasher is 60dB
  • An alarm clock is 80dB
  • A lawn mower is 90dB
OBJECT NOISE LEVEL dB(A) AT 1 METER
Leaves Rustling 20dB
A Whisper 30dB
A Quiet Library 40dB
A Dishwasher 60dB
Alarm Clock 80dB
Lawn Mower 90dB

That should put things into perspective when you learn that the Aquaheat pool heat pump sounds from 36.8 dB, which is quieter than a whisper or a library.  In fact, we believe that Aquaheat is the quietest heat pump out there.  But are we right?

Based on the product sheets of our various competitors, (the air pump noise in dB(A) at 1m distance), we can confirm that Aquaheat is the quietest, see below for details.
