Is the leak in the light niche or in the conduit at the back of the niche where the electric cable comes out of. The best way to find this out is with food coloring.

Just to add- pool lights are supposed to allow for water to get behind the light casing. The light casing is the part you pull out of the niche and up on to the deck. The niche is set into the wall and you screw the light casing into that.
