We have two identical water heaters (40 gals each) installed side by side and in parallel (plumbing and gas lines). They are both same model and brand, installed probably at the same time (we are second home owners). One of them is fine, but for the other one I see that the pilot light is not on. Tried to light it as per the instructions on the heater, but it doesn't light. Searched through askmetafilter and found this
Answer. But I guess my problem has more to do with gas flow than thermocouple as I cannot light the pilot. The same gas pipeline branches over the heaters to feed both the heaters.
