Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one who will try to assist you if possible today. I am sorry to hear your having trouble with your pool heater. Typically there can be a few things that is going on with this is a problem.

There is an "air switch or sail switch" that proves that the blower has came on and expelled any remaining gases in the flue. It is likely that this switch either has failed or is hung up and will not operate. If this switch does not close, the gas valve will not open. So you may have to replace that part.
