Would you build a pool in Florida with no Screen Enclosure?
So, i'm in the process of designing my pool and I live in the Tampa, FL area. At first my thought was I HAVE to have a screen. Everyone else does and that is just the way it is. Well, now that i'm in the designing part, there is only just so much you can do with a screen. Here in lies my question: would you build a pool in Florida with no screen enclosure? Are the bugs really that bad? First of all the screen limits the pools design. Secondly, on a 30x55 entertaining area it's going to cost me upwards of 15k to put in a screen. All my neighbors have them and it seems like everyone in Florida has one, but are they really needed or it is just that everyone has them so everyone gets them?
