Worth going salt water, have not lost a day to shocking since I did, and no chlorine smell either. Can switch for about $1,000 have had this about 8 months and used only one 40 lb bag of salt. The equipment tells you the salt level, PH etc sometimes need muriatic acid. Got it from Aqua Tech in Brooksville... more
This sounds like an issue that needs to be brought to the attention of your home owner's association. When taking such action, it's always best when the matter is addressed by a group of people all sharing the same concern as opposed to a single individual bringing up the topic at an association meeting.
Drive time to get to Tampa International Airport from 7335 Lincoln Park Ln, Port Richey, FL, according to my own personal experience having lived near by Port Richey, is 45-50 minutes. Google Maps list 3 different routes to choose from. You can check out the Google Map I created for you at the link posted in the web reference.
WARNING: Taking Hwy 19 will always be longer than expected, also, it will cost about $4.25 to get to TIA on SR 589 but it is well worth it in my opinion.If you are making the trip often it would be worth purchasing a Sunpass.

Here's a link to the FBI web page on violent crime. Lots of information there. http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius_04/offenses_reported/violent_crime/index.html
And here's the Census Bureau's statistics of violent crime by state, per 100,000 people.
A 1% violent crime rate would mean 1,000 violent crimes for every 100,000 people. And, yes, that would be very, very bad. The District of Columbia tops the list at 1,508 violent crimes per 100,000 people, or a rate of 1.5%. Florida overall ranks 4th highest, at 712/100,000 (or 0.7%). Maine is lowest of all the states, at 115/100,000, or just 0.1%).
Specifically for Zip Code 34668, see http://www.cityrating.com/citycrime.asp?city=New+Port+Richey&state=FL According to that site, violent crime there in 2003 (admittedly, somewhat dated) was 1.54 times the national average.
