I am not familiar with pool heaters so I am sorry I can't help you regarding these.

The best bet would be to contact a pool sales/supplier in your area for tech service to get background info on your brand of heater.

You have a lot of ifs here. First is there power to the unit?
If no power you can have a millivolt generator or thermopile there that makes the unit work. This is like a thermocouple. When you light the pilot it makes the electric that works the valve. So find out what you have. If it is a millivolt take it out and with you and get a new one.
