    in-ground pool kits

    We are in the beginning stages of picking out an in-ground pool kit. We just want a rectangle or roman style. Can anyone tell me the benefits of steel walls over resin walls for an in-ground build? Also, is there a way to find out what in-ground pool kits the DIY-ers have used without going through everyone's signatures? Just not interested in trying to reinvent the wheel!

    I would think the advantage would go to the resin walls. No corrosion concerns ever. Strength, if they're designed right, is not an issue. I can't think of a thing that a steel wall would be better at than a resin wall. However Except for corrosion, Steel is just as good as resin.
