Outdoor outlet not working

I have an outlet by my pool. It was working as of about 2 months ago (and for 20 years). While setting up to drain some water from the pool with a submersible pump, there appeared to be no power to the outlet.

The outlet is on the same line as the pool pump and that works. I decided to change the outlet and still nothing.

I tested the outlet with a circuit tester and got nothing.

Since most of the line is underground, I am not sure what to try next.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

1st question are you sure the outlet is on same circuit. Look around for a gfci outlet someplace in, around house, Usual places are outdoor outlets, garage outlets, bathroom (s), Also look behind any furniture. Jot of times they are hidden behind something that has not been moved in several years. If you find one push reset button.
