hole in pool wall

I have a hole in the pool wall under my deck that water is streaming out of. What do I do? The hole is about the size of a pencil.

Well, I would highly suggest plugging the hole. :P

Seriously...what is your pool made out of? Above ground? Below ground? Vinyl? Cement? Plaster? Fiberglass?

above ground pool - metal walls with vinyl liner. A few years back I patched a pin hole in liner at about the spot the hole in the wall is. I have checked the patch every once in awhile and I thought it looked like it was holding but since the hole developed in the metal wall I'm thinking that the patch is not working. I can repatch the liner but need to know what to do with the hole in the metal wall. Help - please!!!!

If your metal wall has a hole in it (rusted?) the only way to fix it is from the inside. Unfortunately if you cant patch the vinyl, you are looking at a new liner.

I would try to patch as best you can this season, and replace the liner and metal segment next spring.
