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 :-)
you sure can, but why stop there? keep chipping and dig the dirt out and make a 30 ft deep pool. really you might get an inch if you try that, but you will lose the color of the plaster or quartz.
Gunite, cement does not rust.
How often should you resurface a gunite pool?
No. Gunite is concrete.
Pebble sheen is the finish on the surface of a pool gunite is the cement that a pool is constructed from in other words you can finish a gunite pool with pebble sheen.
Either gunite or fiberglass will work well for an indoor pool.

Gunite is a trowled-on cement coating similar to stucco.
You would go to a pool builder
You can use the same hole in the ground for both a vinyl liner pool and a gunite pool. You should not need a new hole dug.
gunite gunned in cold weather
Our pool installer told us to wet down our gunite once in the morning and once in the evening for seven full days after the gunite is installed.
No, because gunite will not dry if it is constantly being mixed with water. Drain your pool first.
Best not to empty a gunite pool, period. Having the pool surface exposed to air and temperature chanfes and drying will result in cracking.
absolutely. consult ur pool professional
acid wash pool
The cost to resurface a gunite pool depends on your location, the size of your pool, and exactly what you want done. On average, as of 2014 it cost between $8,000 and $15,000 to resurface a pool.
"Gunite" is a special concrete mix that is sprayed, with a specialized spray gun. Using Gunite requires, by definition, the use of the spray gun.
Whats yer question?
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.
