nothing makes it easier'n having the right tools,,, we use elec grinders w/turbo diamond cup wheels, gas/elec/air scarifiers ( walk-behind & hand-held ), & sandblasters to remove old fail'd coatings,,, after that part, its easier just more still hot dusty filthy work !

why would anyone want a smooth surface pool & give up the traction & slip-proofing that SHOULD be present underfoot ?

its HIS pool but i'm certain his insurance company'll look very much down their nose at such a surface,,, wouldn't be a bad idea to ck the natl swimming pool inst while you're at it !

Inside the pool you want smooth
Around the pool - walking - should have traction
My pool also needs to be smoothed out
But it has a liner, so the liner needs to be removed 1st
