only experience I have with them is I had two at once, first and last...can turnout to be more of a pain in the ass than the enjoyment they offer

Yes, I have had pools and they can be a pain, but in Thailand I would want one

With the new salt water chlorinators pools are very much easier to look after than the older versions.
Neighbours just put a 10 x 3 m lap pool in.Its upped the electricity bill about a 1,000 baht a mth but maintenance is minimal.Proviso on that is that you dont have leaves falling in 24/7. Positive in Thailand is you can use it 12 mths of the year.

So, is anyone able to provide some useful information on this. Pricing, construction materials, reputable companies (local or willing to travel), etc etc........

Have a look at ones that have been constructed in your area and talk to the owners.
I'm in Chiang mai and there are numerous pool construction companies but out of reach for you.
