Neighbor's noisy filter
My upstairs neighbor installed a salt water tank a few months ago, and recently got a new filter. He swears he can barely hear it standing right next to it, but somehow the vibration is projecting downward -- there's a constant and fairly loud mechanical hum coming through my ceiling -- audible enough to cause a headache whenever I'm in our living room more than about 15 minutes. (I'm assuming it's the filter.)
He's basically said it's my problem and that if I have any solutions he'll be happy to try them. I suggested he talk with the store who sold him his set-up but he seems to think they won't be able to tell him anything else (he says he applied some thin pad(s?) to it already). I find that hard to believe.
I'd be grateful if anyone has suggestions. Apologies if this has been covered before, I searched the archives and didn't find anything about this specifically.
Thanks very much.
