Here are some previous similar questions with answers FYI -

Note that treated wood, unless coated with a filler sealer (which then bring in the issue of refinishing it every year to three) is generally NOT considered a good pool deck material - treated for the frame and supporting legs sure, but not for the deck surface or railings - the splinters fester up real nastily in feet and legs, and the treatment chemical can cause rashes on some people too. Ditto to cedar and redwood with respect to slivers and rashing. If you want a long-lived, bare-skin friendly decking material, I would recommend a rot and decay resistant wood like ipay or core dark mahagony or ironwood or such.

Personally I do NOT recommend Trex or similar "plastic" decking - they have too much of a problem with fuzzing up, splitting, and looking bad in a fairly short time.
