Sparking means all safety circuts are satisfied so problem is no gas to pilot. Possibilities are in order of common occurance; spider web in pilot oriface, stuck gas valve (most common on spring start up after heater has been sitting out of use), pilot tubing leaking, no gas supply from house.

For most pool heaters, if they will not start up in the spring, the problem is corrosion in the wiring somewhere... I would remove and clean all wiring connections and then try. The amount of current is very small and so any bit of corrosion can cause the unit not to work.
It all so could the t-stat again, but you would need to check that with an OHM meter. No continuity when the heater should be on will confirm that the t-stat is bad...
