This is really a very simple matter.

Trying to access all the variables is a very complex task, so just set your pool heater to maintain a constant temperature, and record your natural gas consumption daily, along with the other relevant parameters (water temperature, air temperature and relative humidity).

You will then have a complete chart of heat loss relative to water temp, air temp and relative humidity. Make a note of average winds in the area also as this can affect heat loss as well.

Comments welcome, I am in the process of building a complete, integrated solar system for my home (pool heat, house heat and hot water, and airconditioning)

It uses the heat of the sun to trap the heat and gradually the water in pool should become warmer.
