I don't think you want to sand the deck. Besides tearing the surface fibers of the wood, you stand a good chance of removing the galvanizing on the tops of your nails or screws, thus exposing them to rust. I can recommend products by a company called Flood :
They have chemical products that will help lift your flakey surface treatment. I have used their surface treatment on a 17 year old deck and it still looks new. It penetrates the wood, and does not just coat the surface. I redo the treatment every three or four years, most recently last week, and am always amazed how a liberal application of this stuff will actually cause small surface cracks in the wood to swell and close up as the wood absorbs the treatment.
Good Luck
