The pilot flame on my pool heater is about 6 inches high and buring yellow, not the low blue flame like normal. What would cause this. Everything else seems to be working fine.

How does the burner look when it fires? If it's burning clean (blue) then it may just be the pilot tube.
Usually there's a tiny orifice at the pilot assembly you can take apart and clean out.
