    Hey fishunt, welcome to TFP!

    You will want to use a sealant specifically made for pool decks. I am not familiar enough with the brands to have a best recommendation, but I did some research and found a few options. I will send you more info via PM.

    Do you mean travertine coping?

    Is the concrete plain white concrete, or something different, like stamped concrete?

    I am certainly not an authoritative source but I have seen plain concrete sealed with less than satisfactory results. It took the seal very unevenly and was blotchy looking. I personally would suggest not sealing it.

    The travertine might do well but I believe it also functions just fine unsealed.

    I would leave the plain white concrete unsealed. I would have some concern about the travertine around a salt pool. I would suggest a penetrating sealer made for this purpose, such as in the links below.
