Anyone have any first hand knowledge of them. Or a company they could recommend. I am in the early stages of my research on them, and there are so many different options. Concrete, liner, fiberglass, gunnite . Just curious of which type is the best to go with. The only thing I am sure about is getting the salt water filtration system....
Do you have kids? My brother had a "zero depth entry" into his pool and it was pretty nice for the younger kids.
I know there as an added cost but your should consider it... It's got kinda of a walking into the lake feel to it
I use to deal with a few pool companies but I honestly don't know if any are even still in business. So I'm out of ideas for you now
Start with Paul's Pool Service in St Clair Shores.
Paul's Pool Services
26117 Harper Avenue, St. Clair Shores, MI 48081
I know he at the very least services inground and could at least point you in the right direction. He shares the building with his brother (who owns Shores Pool Services that focuses on above ground pools). I've had great experiences with the brother with my pool at my old house. Knowledgable, friendly, and priced fair.

This company does great work.
The pools they use have a vinyl liner, the top 4' of the walls consist of metal panels that are cemented in place and then the bottom is layered with vermiculite that is troweled smooth. You can have stairs installed that either go under the liner as well or as a seperate fiberglass piece. The salt water generation system is a must and you may also want to think about a heater. They also offer financing if that is something you may need. If you do give them a call ask to speak to Mike and he can fill you in on all you need to know, great guy and very knowledgeable.

fiberglass at least 20k, gunnite at least 30k plus...but these are the 2 best ways gunnite is the best but im not sure how much price is a factor
if you want to save money the cheapest way to go is an above ground Aluminum (must be aluminum so it doesnt rust) and sink it into the ground.... can do this for under 8k... i worked for viscount pools for a summer back in the day...
Don't do an above ground in any capacity. If you're going to go through the hassle of maintaining a pool make it one worthwhile.
