We are not allowed to know or steer people into areas that have religious populations or patterns. That would be somewhat discriminatory and we are not allowed by law to do that.

Try the Sarasota County Code Enforcement to see if there is anything they can do. Here is the web site:

I am not sure if you are located in the city of Venice. They may have their own Code Enforcement Department.

Michelle ,

I am no pool builder but I have been seeing advertisements for bare bones minimum pools for @$16K. Really you are at least@ $20k-25k for decent play pool with a few bells n whistles.

Hope that helped.... let me know if you need assistance with a home search with or without pools :)
