Concrete pool problem

You didn't mention the pool's surface. If it's plaster, I recommend you empty the pool as soon as possible and scrub off the concrete before it sets too hard. It may even be too late.

Running the pump and cleaner will result in the pump and filter getting clogged up with the concrete. If it has a chance to set (concrete cures in the presence of water) you may end up ruining the pump and filter too.

If your pool has a liner you should empty it and clean it up as for plaster, though cleaning will be much easier.

Concrete fiber problem

Fibre Tech is a fiberglass resurfacing process. As such, the gel coat surface is susceptible to damage from the concrete in the pool.

If it were my pool, I would empty it, power-wash and refill. However, there is a warning on the manufacturers website stating:
if the pool is drained without first relieving the hydrostatic pressure on the pool shell, the pool shell can buckle and crack. All damage to the pool shell resulting from draining the pool without professional assistance of your authorized Independent Fibre-Tech dealer is the owner’s responsibility


Why not ask your local dealer for advice, or contact the manufacturer directly. See the Fibre Tech website.
