In response to Re: gas water heater pilot gets blown out
If the gas pressure is correct, then the air adjustment is open too far.

: I have a 6 yr old gas water heater and recently (today) the pilot light gets blown out by the main burner.
: The burner kind of sputters as it burns, but it has a blue flame. I called a plumber to come fix, he took it
: apart and looked at it and said it all looked okay and thought it was something wrong with the gas coming in.
: I had the gas company come out and they checked the pressure and for water in the line (outside) and
: said it was all okay. Anyone have any ideas. It's like the burner flame is too strong - the flame is actually
: about 1/4 " from the orifice on some points. (sorry for the wordeness) - david
