A pilot light is, most the time, very easy to light. Your heater should have instructions right on it. Follow them closely. BUT- before you do, You can call your local gas company and they will come do it for you.There should not be any charge for this service. They do this to protect you and themselves. { It would cost more to clear up after an explosion than to have an expence of lighting pilot light for those that can't do it.} Please call them first. Also ,I'm sure they will look over your heater and tell you what kind of shape it's in. What I'm about to say I mean in the kindest way, if you don't know how to light a pilot light, DO NOT attempt to change out your gas water heater. Everyone likes to save money,but hire someone that has done it before or at least someone that can be with you to guide you through a safe installation project. Be carefull, Ron J.
