The HOA rules would likely ban the installation of a pool too.

When we were looking for a house, our realtor wanted to show us a house 
for which he was the listing agent, but it was in an HOA-controlled 
community. When I resisted on the grounds that HOAs typically prohibit 
amateur radio antennas, he told me that I was paranoid -- that although 
he could see a bunch of retired old biddies in Florida with nothing 
better to do objecting, he couldn't see why younger people in the 
Midwwest who have to go to work every day would be worried. The seller 
happened to be a former president of the HOA, and he too said he didn't 
think the HOA would object, but said he would consult the current board 
officials. Then -- no surprise to me -- he reported back that the HOA 
would *not* permit an antenna.
