Pebble Tec repair for swimming pool


I want to know what the process is for repairing Pebble Tec and advice from anyone who has had the ssame problem as I am having with Pebble Tec coming off of the pools bench corners. My pool is about 7 years old and has three kidney bean shaped steps and two benches in the pool. On almost eveery bench and step on the outer radius on these ledges the pebble tec is coming off. The rest of the pebble tec surface in the pool looks fine and has no cracks. I want to get it repaired but am having a hard time finding someone that can/will do this type of work in the Phoenix AZ area. Has anyone out there had their Pebble Tec repaired and what was your experience?

I live in Sun city West and have the same problem in a large outdoor spa (about 800 Gallons) which we leave empty during our absences for about 4 -5 months in the summer. Actually we rarely use the spa or heat it up. Occasionally we crank it up for guests or let grandkids play in it in spring.
I just have a crack about a foot long on the corner of one bench. Our spa is about 12 years old (we have owned it for only 5 years) It looks to me as if the underlying concrete is ok and the pebblecrete has just pulled away at the bench corner.
Leslie Pool supplies sells a white Portland cement compound for patching pools. After browsing and searching and failing to find answers I am about to try the patch compound. It won't look so good but if neatly done the patch should not scratch or cut the ass or legs of people sitting on the bench.
