SOURCE: My gas pool heater is banging

Hayward, gas heater... a metal clinking noise and the hoses doing a twitch every 5 to 20 seconds. my experience says it is that diverter shield has come loose...disconnect everything. unscrew the in and outlet connections.look into the hole, you will likely see a metal, plate with two half circles, one facing the inlet hole, and if you go around to the other side you will see the other end of the plate, with a half circle. this plate comes loose, whatever they use doesn't last.
one guy used a small hose clamp to keep it from sliding up and down the post, I used that two part plumbers putty, to "weld" it in, comes in a small cylinder, it's two part, you cut off a piece and mold it in your hands, worktime is only 3 min. cures in an hour.... no more clinking metal or twitching hoses.

Yes, it is either the gas valve or the gas supply that is the problem. Can you check the gas pressure with a manometer? How old is the heater? Gas valves go about 10-15 years on average.

Take along the old element with you while looking around for a new one in the market. It is absolutely vital to change the element otherwise it can send some current in the swimming pool. First of all, turn off the power supply to the heater to avoid any injuries. Open up the drain pipe and take out water from it. Fix the new element and test the heater by filling water in your swimming pool so that the heater can work to its full efficiency.
