cool deck removal

At some point in the next couple of weeks I would like to begin removing the old cool deck surrounding the pool. Deck drainage has been a problem that I intend to address at the same time. I plan to re-surface with another cool deck. Any suggestions as far as removing the present cool deck?

I was here when they installed my pool - and the deck they put in was a regular concrete deck with a "cool deck" topping. It was splattered on - does not cover the entire surface - it looked like very thick paint but it had a "rubber" like feel so you wouldn't slip down. Mine has worn off and needs to be replaced - also there are places where water has dripped down and left "pock marks" in the cement.
If you figure out how to make it look better please let me know.
