    Yes, to find the sound of a water feature that annoying you'd have to have anger issues.

    Depends on the water feature. If it's stone, I highly doubt it can really be that annoying — but some silly aluminium features can be very noisy.

    it'll be pretty ironic is someone here says "no, they shouldn't be allowed" as the shops will still be selling 'em. it's like smoking - the government is encouraging not to smoke, don't buy those death sticks, yet the shops are still blatantly selling it. :rolleyes: anyway, if the neighbours don't like the sound of it, they should move, should impose a ban on buying water feature :p:

    What if they have lived there for 20 years and suddenly this neighbour moves next door with annoying windchimes and a water feature constantly on all day?

    I'm guessing this situation isn't very hypothetical ;p? I suppose there isn't much you can do, except hope your neighbours show some decency :o:

    They can be switched off late at night surely?

    If it's a nuisance beyond a reasonable level of acceptability, then it should be - and is - potentially unlawful.

    heck, if it was me I'll just:

    a) destroy it in the night
    b) take it away and give it in for tomorrow's rubbish collection

    or, my favourite:

    c) put a big, noisy windmill thing in my back garden and see how they will like it. :p: and if they ask why I bought it, I'll just say I'm limiting my consumption of carbon dioxide :rolleyes: "won't want to waste energy Mr Pendantric!"

    I don't like complaining I think it would be petty at the same time its annoying. Can't really talk to the neighbour as I kind of complained about his 3 windchimes last year lol, I offered to buy covers for them but he took them down. Now there is a water feature and bright light opposite my window shining in my room every night, but I bought a blind so thats the light resolved.

    The problem is Im one of those highly strung idiots that little things annoy, I wondered how common it is to get annoyed by water features and if there was any clever way of getting rid of it without having to ask:o:

    basically, leave all your lights on, encourage all your friends to. this will lead to an increase in co2 emissions. as a result, global warming will be more intense. this will lead to a hotter summer, leading to a drought and this will lead to a hosepipe ban, water features will probably be included in the ban :P
