In response to Re: Need help on water heater
: I do no have enough hot water. I have added another water heater next to my hot water heater in my garage. Now both of them seem to go out and I have to light the pilot light on the old one several times a day.
: Any ideas, I'm just want my hot water.

The gas supply line could be too small to carry enough gas to the WH's. When one fires up it could be knocking (or pulling) the pilot out on the other WH, heavy drafts could also knock the pilots out.
The reason you didn't have enough HW originally could be because of a leak somewhere on the piping system depleting the HW storage or maybe even a defective dip tube in the WH.
Have it checked by a professional especially when it comes to dealing with gas.
Good Luck. e-plumber
