loud pool pump build sound cancellation for it without overheating pump motor because of possible enclosure requirement?

I have a pool pump. it seems a bit loud especially to the neighbors. I tried to buy some foam and 'for sale' signs, glued them together and wrapped them around the pump but it's still too loud, and I'm worried about overheating the pump/motor because of the wrapping of the motor/pump. Is there some way to build a sound cancellation system for this for say a hundred bucks that will run outside?

perhaps so e sort of deflector- the problem is that I have a restricted area to work in

No. try making a masonry shelter, and making the noise go UP, not out.
