In most cases, your thermocouple is bad. The thermocouple consists of the two tubes that come out of the gas valve and go into the combustion chamber at the bottom of the water heater. They can be replaced. Sometimes water leaking in the tank can drip down and snuff the pilot light out. If the tank is leaking down onto the pilot light, usually you have to replace the water heater. Before you hire someone to replace a thermocouple, check the date when your heater was built. All water heaters come with a six year warranty. If it is newer than six years old, call the manufacturer to send a warranty representative out to look at it. All this information can be found on the stickers on your water heater or the warranty paperwork that came with the heater. Sometimes this paperwork can be found in a packet attached to the side of the heater.
What People Are Saying About Us
We hired A Perfect Plumber to replace an old worn out shower stall for my sister. Spencer Peck did an excellent job and did it quickly. He also showed up when he said he would and was always on time. That is a big plus in Tooele where a lot of contractors make appointments but never show up. We also hired him to do a small job at our house and of course was very pleased with his work. He is very professional and did a great job!

We called and he came to fix our shower. We called and he came immediately. We were so grateful! He ended up fixing three showers for us and a toilet! One stop - 5 fixes! A Perfect Plumber - Spencer was amazing! I highly recommend them!

Spencer was fantastic! He was able to come out the same day I contacted him and fix our split pipe to our sprinkler system. Stayed to check that all the zones of the system were working. Very polite and helpful. Definitely recommend!
