If the crack(s) are small and you have determined that your pool is not loosing water then leave the cracks alone. If the crack is sufficient to make the pool loose water ( determine that you are actually loosing water with a bucket test) the crack can be sealed with epoxy putty, fix-leak, or hot epoxy. It takes a specialist to determind just how much of the crack needs to be reworked.

Is there anyway to temporarily repair cracks on fiberglass pool steps with water still in the pool?

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. There is always a reason a pool cracks....expansive soil, ground movement, trees (I am fixing a tree crack right now) soil compaction/liquifaction etc.
