I am having the same situation, my pool is coated with rubber chlorinated (I presume). Chips are mostly caused by different factors such as: paint application on damp surface or badly prepared surface, incompatible paint layers. It is recommended to either bring it to bare surface or to sand and stay with the same coating. I was referred to sandblast specialists who charge 2000$ for the job to bring the pool to bare material. So I opted for sanding. I did use the long way, and tried different tools with more or less success. ( floor polisher with #38 disk, special concrete disk with orbital polisher (quite useful for removing thicker coating), water-sand-blaster from the location shop, water-pressure which proved to be most efficient with chips but very very long. I tried also some thick spots with paint remover but that was hard. Finally, I will proceed in the following week to clean and fully dry the pool before painting it again with Chlorinated rubber (choose National). Will post results :-)

Gunite is covered with plaster. It is sprayed on concrete sorta. They mix it in the hoses and it is blown on. You can go to youtube and see them gunite a pool. I am only aware of plaster, vinyl or painted pool surfaces. The vinyl is just like thin rubber.
