      Help! The pilot light on my hot water heater keeps going out. Until several months ago it had never gone out. Then it went out twice in one month. Now, its going out 3 or 4 times a week. It shares a flue with the central heating unit, which has never had a problem.

      Rob: Replace the thermocouple, and see if that doesnt solve the problem…if not call back, and well go to plan B…lots of luck..Bud.. Suncoast Plumbing Inc.
