I'd clean it up good with a putty knife and wire brush.
If there any real deep areas with them with Hydraulic cement.
Once it dries coat the whole thing with Dri-Lok.

i'd use ' herculiner ' truck bed liner,,, think its only avail in grey now,,, we often coat conc w/it & haven't had any problems [ no $ interest ]. you can locate small quantities on eBay

you need to clean existing conc 1st of course.

I'd scrape it clean and paint it with an epoxy paint.

why do think ' herculiner ' ? this is our work & epoxies are NOT for exterior use,,, all paints guarantee you more work sooner

I certainly agree with the idea of using epoxy paint. There are many epoxies available that are designed for painting the interior of swimming pools so water and sun exposure should not be an issue.

Unless it's leaking I'm not sure really why you want to coat it with anything. Just wire brush off any loose material and leave it like it is. It may be a little rough but you're not swimming in it so you won't notice the roughness. Anything you apply, including epoxy will need to be redone sooner or later.
