Sometimes when you shut down a circuit breaker it doesn't go all the way back to the on position. Try shutting them off again, making sure they go fully to the off position then flip them on making sure they are fully on. If the toggle that you flip is wobbly or feels loose that is your problem and you can correct it by doing the above. <><><> It is possible that one of the circuit breakers you turned off is bad. I have turned off breakers before and had them fail to reconnect the circuit when it was flipped back on. I had to replace the breakers. <><><> Could be the electrical circuits in the pool area - which is very liable to get water spray and splashes - is protected by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) as well as the main circuit breaker on the supply panel.

If that fixture you mentioned has been replaced incorrectly there could be a wiring error or a ground fault condition which is tripping the GFCI. As working on electricity in a wet area is now illegal in many localities - check the wiring codes or regulations in the town or state where you live - it is safest and best to call in a licensed electrician to fix this problem for you. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB
SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY
REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND always use a meter or voltage indicator to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.
