What is the model number of your heater? is the thermocouple connection at the gs valve dry (no pipe dope) and tight? is the pilot strong?
If the pilot is strong and 1/3 of the tip of the thermocouple is in the pilot flame and your connection at the gas valve is dry and tight then the only thing left is a problem with the gas valve.
