Is there a way to patch a swimming pool that has water in it?

Yes, you can. The type of patching would depend on what kind of pool it is - vinyl or concrete - and what it is that needs patching. You can use a piece of pool liner and underwater liner repair glue to patch a vinyl liner (I prefer to not use the clear patch material that comes in most store bought liner repair kits, but the glue is ok to use). If it is a concrete shell, you would use a 2-part underwater epoxy made for pool repair. If the pool is a fiberglass shell, you will likely need to empty the pool to make an effective patch.

How do you fix a leak in a vinyl pool?

Use an underwater liner repair kit available at a pool supply store. The better solution is to use a piece of liner that matches the liner in your pool instead of the clear patch in the repair kits. Simply cut it to fit, round out the corners, and apply the glue from the store bought kit. The repair can be done underwater.

There are a number of products you can use to prolong the life of your pool.

You could purchase a liner pad or pool padding for the bottom of your pool. And you can invest in vinyl liner repair kits to repair the small punctures and prolong the life of your liner.
