If your crack is losing water, chewing gum works well (seriously), it will adhere under the water, and flexes with the crack when bathers put their weight on the step, then the chewing gum will reseal itself until you are able to repair the crack properly. Underwater epoxy can also be used, but gum is cheaper, and flexes whereby the underwater epoxy hardens and doesn't flex. Pool has kits for fiberglass pool steps. Remember to chew the gum first, then push it into the crack(s)

How do you repair a pool crack with full pool?

There are 2 part epoxies that will do the trick. The product has a clay like consistency to it and the label should tell you if it can be used underwater. Pool stores, Lowes, Home Depot all have a suitable product. Clean the crack of debris or loose plaster, mix up the epoxy and push it into the crack as deep as you can. Go back over the area with a finger to remove most of the excess and give a decent appearance to the repair. It will last until whatever caused the crack allows it to crack again.

Pool Repair?

Many pools have vinyl liners. As the pool ages, the vinyl liner will oftentimes become cracked. These cracks cause water to drain out of the pool, which can result in greater damage.

There are different types of patch kits, some of which are meant to be used above water and some below the water. This type of pool repair is relatively simple.

Can a crack in the plaster of a gunite pool be repaired and if so how effective will the fix be?

I general, the answer is yes. It the crack comes from the pool moving, and the gunite has cracked, then the gunite has to be repaired before the plaster. Sometimes opening up the gunite crack and refilling with concrete will answer the problem. If movement of the soil is the problem then that has to be fixed first.The soil getting excessivly wet and dry can mean that the pool will move, if it is only part of the pool then there will be a structuaral crack. Only opening up the crack will tell you whether it is a plaster crack or a gunite crack. A replaster is from about $2000 up and structuaral repairs from about $1000
