Pilot is probably clogged or rusted out of shape chek to see if gas is actulay leaving the gas valve,
if you follow the pilot tube back to the gas valve you check it there,
crack the nut loose where the pilot tube connects to the gas valve, hold down your pilot button to see if it lets gas through ,if it does replace the pilot as an assembly

Check the safety valve and the mixer - maybe the air input is clogged by dirt.

Pentair minimax 100 pool heater millivolt type wont light


You need to check your tanks and make sure that you have enough gas. The heater will need 30% or more in the tanks. If they changed the gas valve I assume that you had a natural gas valve and they replaced with a LP. If your tanks are small then you will only get a couple of days out of them. On this I would need more info. Size of tank size of pool (surface aera) wind conditions, exact model of heater.
First ck to be sure that you have enough gas and be sure to bleed the line before you start once the tanks are full. Let me know how you do. Kieran

Clean out the pilot assemby or replace it. It is probably blocked by rust and/or spiders and is not letting enough gas (if any) through.
