pool skimmer crack


I have a crack in one of my in-ground pool skimmers which is leaking water out of the pool making it difficult to maintain an optimal level for the skimmer to work. It looks like the previous homeowner had patched it with some kind of rubber membrane which has since rotted away. Anyone know of a sealing/bonding product that I can use to get me through this swimming season? It looks like replacing the skimmer is a pretty big job, but I welcome any advice on that as well!

I would try an epoxy, but you probably need to let the water level down so you can make a dry repair.
