SOURCE: pilot light will not stay lit
The flame must satisfy the thermocouple. Then the thermocouple must satisfy the valve. If you have a great flame on the thermocouple, it is possible that you have a bad gas valve, if no other saftey switches has you shut down to not allow the valve to open.

If your unit has a thermo-coupling this is most likely the issue This little sensor sends a milli-voltage to the gas valve telling it to keep sending gas for the pilot since its lit and all is good. They wear out and the gas valve thinks the flame has gone out (whick is hasnt) and kills the gas flow.

SOURCE: My pool heater pilot will
Ok a couple things to check here would be a thermocouple or a flame switch depending on the the type of ignition source. If it has a standing (continious) pilot you need to look for a small copper line returning from the pilot source to the gas valve most likley this will be it. The other will be a small copper line returning to a switch with 2 wires on the backside this will be a flame switch. the thermocouple could most likley be purchased from your local hardware store but a flame switch will have to come from the heater manufacturer.
