Hi everyone. Ok, my pool needs some extensive TLC. I live in Arizona, and here the pool is greatly used. Unfortunately, The pool was built in the early 80's. The decking around the pool is peeling and cracking, making it dangerous and unappealing to the eye. On top of that, the decking was not ADA approved, as the walkway around the pool is only about 1'6" wide. I am not a fan of Kool Decking. Its not really that cool, and damages bathing suits. I would like to do stained concrete, but I hear not only is it slippery, but its super hot to the feetsies. I'm totally willing to takle the project as a diy, but I wanted to get some direction. My budget is, well, almost none-existent and just buying the supplies could be a long project itself. Does anyone know a cheap way to go about replacing the decking?

In ground pool? Not DIY, but I'd go for stamped concrete in a light color. They can make it look like different types of stone or brick. A light color should be easier on the feet than most other decking materials.
