Cracked Pebble Crete pool coping

we have a marble sheen pool with pebble Crete coping that is quite badly cracked and we are looking for ideas to freshen it up and contain the deterioration until we have the budget to renovate fully

has anyone used this product Megatreat before and had results? 

Are there any other products out there on the market that anyone can recommend? 

Thanks for your help

I note that on this page - https://www.bunnings.com.au/our-range/brands/m/megatreat it says "Megatreat can be applied to a clean, stable surface..."

 

I suspect you might be better saving for the full renovation. Maybe do something like @Adam_W here - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor/Timber-free-deck/m-p/14767

@liverpoolroad , I'm inclined to agree with @MartyH 
Most of these products need a stable substrate. In your case it looks a wee bit too far gone & any painted areas will just lift off.
I'd be inclined to remove the loose material & then hold-out until you can do a proper reno.
