Please help, we have several cracks in our steps . This is our first year owning a pool and has been one fix after the next. We finally got the water clear with all the other posts here. Ok here is the deal, the steps are like an insert that is textured so you don't slip....in a diamond pattern. The leaks are in the middle and bottom step. When you lay your hand near it you can feel the water going out of the pool. It look like the one crack was patched at one point in time. There are also what appear to be two other patch jobs.
