    Pros and cons of various types of IG pools?

    Starting to consider an IG pool and I'm looking for some general information regarding the various types available.

    What are the pros and cons of each design? I realize this is somewhat subjective, but I'm just starting my education on the subject .

    How would similar sizes and design of cement, fiberglass and liner pools compare in total cost of install and ownership?

    That's probably enough to start with. Any information is appreciated!

    Thanks
