I am a big fan of Fiberglass pools. I have had vinyl liner pools and concrete pools. Fiberglass pools are easy to clean, they manitain chemical balance better, and the surface does not need to be refinished as often as concrete pools. The only downside is that the surface of fiberglass pools can be a bit more slippery than concrete but that has not caused any problems for us.

Which is better concrete or steel pools?

All depends on what you are looking for and how much you have to spend. Concrete pools are usually considered the "high-end" pool but installation takes a long time and maintenance and repair are costly. Steel pools, or I'm assuming you're referring the vinyl liner pools, are a good, cost efficient option. Though, if you want to extend the life span of your pool, check out the other building materials used for vinyl liner pools.. such as Fiber Reinforced Composite Materials.

Are concrete or steel walls better for an inground swimming pool?

Steel walls are currently the lowest quality wall for a swimming pool, with the exception of Cyprus wood (if still available). Concrete (not gunite) is superior to any other wall, but a pool with concrete walls generally also has a concrete bottom. In other words, it is a concrete swimming pool. The most popular wall today for vinyl liner pools is fiberglass and, with the possible exception of concrete, is the best possible choice.
