    How to repair a crack in my pool

    I just bought this house which is a fixer upper. After draining the pool, acid washing it. I now see that I have a crack near the deep in. I have read other threads indicating to use Hydraulic cement to fix this. I used my angle grinder to open up the crack, and used the hydraulic cement to fill the crack. some parts of the crack have stopped leaking. However I still have two parts where I still have a leak. I can not move on to replastering the pool until this is fixed.

    Any ideas on what I can try next to stop this leak? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.

    If the crack is in the body of the pool, you will need to "pin" it with rebar or it will simply recrack.

    Thank you for the response. This sounds like something a
    Professional would need to do. Not sure how to even start
    This process.
