New owner of an old pool

Hi, this is my first post and Im sure it wont be the last. I was wondering if anyone out there has an idea of what to do with an old cracked unlevel,, really unlevel concrete pool deck. I was hoping this could be a do it yourself project. Also was really hoping to not have to tear out the old, maybe just some self leveling mixture and some sort of thin top product. Well, thanks in advance to those who could be of help.

suggest, you contact concrete contractors in your area and see what they say.

If you jack hammer it out and re-pour, make sure you have proper drainage and put a little more-rebar into the deck. Also make sure you leave in the expansion joint around the pool between the coping and the deck and fill it with deck-o-sealů
