How can I remove Kool-Deck from around our pool?

Around our pool, on the cement, is a coating called Cool-Deck or Kool-Deck that keeps the cement from getting hot. Ours is cracking and chipping and I'm wondering if anyone knows how to remove Kool-Deck. We just got an estimate to have it redone and it was over $7000 & I'm hoping if we do the removal, the contractor will charge us substantially less! Thank you!
