Sheerness swimming pool is closed again following another power cut.
The pool - part of the Sheppey Leisure Complex off Royal Road - was put out of action on July 19 after a storm knocked out its electricity.
Today bosses again announced there would be no swimming.
Its sister pool at Swallows in Sittingbourne is also closed following a diarrhoea scare.
A notice on the Sheppey pool's Facebook page says: "We regret to inform customers that we have once again suffered a power cut at the Sheerness Swimming pool.
"As such, we have had to close the building in the interest of Health and Safety.
"Due to not knowing how long the power will be off for we have taken the decision to close until further notice.
"UK Power Network has been made aware of the fault and are aiming to rectify the issue as soon as possible.
"We apologise for the inconvenience this causes and would like to advise that this is a matter beyond our control.
"Any customer related to swimming lessons/clubs and aqua aerobics will be contacted as soon as possible.
School children were left without swimming lessons last month when a thunderstorm cut power to Sheerness pool.
Engineers say it will take time to restore adequate temperatures and chemical levels once the power is reconnected.
The pool at Swallows has been shut as a "precautionary measure" after a report of a "small number" of diarrhoea cases. It is not known when it will reopen.
Anyone who has had diarrhoea should avoid swimming for at least two weeks. Babies and toddlers should always wear swim nappies.
