    yes the gas line is turned on, if it wasn't, the pilot would not ignite, right?

    Not knowing much about gas spa heaters, but knowing a bit about gas domestic water heaters, a lit pilot and a failure for the burner to ignite would cause me to check the thermocouple.

    Missed that about the pilot.

    I agree with dave either the thermocouple or the valve that opens due to the signal from it.
