Bo Henriksen scored his 20th of the season after 22 minutes before an Andrew Bishop volleyed effort made it two three minutes later.
Darrell Clarke pulled a goal back on 63 minutes before Eifion Williams got the all important equaliser on the stroke of full-time to ensure Pool remain perched at the top.
Rushden & Diamonds stay just one-point behind Hartlepool at the top as they recorded a 2-1 win at The Memorial Stadium against strugglers Bristol Rovers.
Latvian star Vitaly Astafjevs scored his sixth goal of the season after only three minutes for the West country side before Onandi Lowe equalised on 37, and then poached a crucial winner on 68 minutes.
The defeat leaves Rovers second from bottom and with it all to do having played two games more than Shrewsbury Town.
Bournemouth succeeded where the rest of the top sides failed as they beat fellow play off contenders Scunthorpe United 2-0 at Glanford Park.
James Hayter and Danny Thomas scored the goals that move Bournemouth above York City and into third place as they look to close the gap on the top two, while the home side also had Peter Beagrie sent-off a minute from time.
Lincoln City, unbeaten at home in the league for 10 matches, suffered an early set-back when Oxford United's Andrew Scott managed to register a goal after just four minutes at Sincil Bank which proved to be the only one of the game.
Hull City were undone by an Andy Morrell double as Wrexham beat them 2-1 at The Kingston Communications stadium.
John Otsemor gave the home side the advantage with a goal 10 minutes after the interval before Morrell equalised for the Welsh side from the penalty spot on 70 minutes.
Morrell then netted his 31st goal of the season with 10 minutes remaining to give all three points to Denis Smith's side.
Leroy Rosenior will be happy his side remain in the hunt for a play off place thanks to a 2-0 win over Rochdale.
Home defender Gareth Griffiths was the unfortunate player to gift the visitors the lead as he put the ball into his own net after 18 minutes before Simon Clist made it two on 52.
Exeter City remain where they began the day, at the bottom of Division Three after Andy Preece's Bury side inflicted a 2-1 home defeat.
Chris Billy opened proceedings on 23 minutes before Jon Newby doubled Bury's lead on the half-hour mark, while Steve Flack's 11th of the season for Exeter was scant consolation.
Macclesfield aided their chances of avoiding relegation with a 1-1 draw against Cambridge United at the Moss Rose Ground.
Journeyman front man Kyle Lightbourne notched his 14th goal of the season for David Moss' side five minutes before half-time.
However, Omer Riza ensured the points were shared with his 16th goal of the season.
Essex-based side Southend avenged their defeat to York City last week with a 2-0 win over Darlington.
Kevin Maher on 40 and Neil Jenkins two minutes later ensured The Shrimpers keep up their mid-table position.
Debutant Wayne Purser made a dream start at Brisbane Road as his hat-trick helped Leyton Orient to a 3-2 win over Boston United.
The new-comer netted after just two minutes before getting his second on 33 minutes but Neil Thompson's side, who threw away a two goal lead at Wrexham on Wednesday, battled well to make it 2-2 with goals from Richard Logan on 28 and veteran Neil Redfearn on 53.
Purser then completed his fantastic afternoon's work with his final strike 10 minutes from time.
Shrewsbury Town moved out of the relegation places after a goalless draw with fellow strugglers Swansea City.
The Shrews have games in hand on several sides around them as Kevin Ratcliffe looks to preserve his side's league status.
