Pool light leaks

My pool light leak 2" in 24 h. It it not possible to fix unless they can get under liner (2 screws are not holding rim). My other option is to disconnect light and install a cover on a to of the hole but I cant find 12" plate for it. Where I can find plate like this, talked to many people from swimming pool business and no one can help. Any other suggestions how to fix the problem

You could try the turners. Teflon (PTFE) sheets are often used for a variety of industrial or commercial applications and is neither expensive nor hard to find. It is real easy to cut too so you won't have a problem getting a 12" circle. You could even cut it yourself if need be.

I want to just cap the niche after attempting to seal my leak with pool putty. I had taken this picture at one time but can't find the product now. Can anyone help?
