    I don't know how big the cracks are but they make a concrete caulk you can use to fill small cracks with.

    Yep, caulk the cracks, and then apply a fresh coat of concrete paint( can buy paint material for around pool) to cover stains, repairs. Did this successfully in Tucson and it looked like new decking! Good luck!

    1st, get some concrete cleaner & clean the whole area around your pool very good. Get some Quickcrete & fill in the cracks. Use the edge of the trowel (for big jobs) or the dull side edge of a butter knife (for small jobs) to scrape it even with the existing concrete. Let dry overnight. Can't think of its proper name but it seals concrete patios around pools to prevent further & future damage. It's made for pool area concretes. Follow package directions. It's usually sold at hardware stores like Lowe's, etc. GOOD LUCK & GOD BLESS!! :)
