    I've not done one myself, but I know a tad about them from folks I've run into over the years from when I had to maintain an inground pool.

    The only real "cons" are too thin of material or a poor installation. The prep work and installation are what's the most important.

    For a job like that I would go further than I normally would to be sure that the contractor who's doing the job is reputable and stands behind his work. I'd want to see pools he installed going back about 10 years - and talk to the people that have them.

    A fiberglass pool should last a lifetime. With the right contractor I'm sure you will be very happy.
