Until I switched to solar, I had a 300,000 BTU natural gas heater on an 18,000 gallon pool. 300,000 BTU was overkill except in the middle of the winter, but I live in Arizona.

But there are a lot of variables, such as wind, surface area, and temperature rise over ambient. The link below has a pool heater size calculator.
