Thanks Herb. Seems this is a pretty common and desirable mod.

Add-on igniter for gas heater.

I had posted an article and pictures of an add-on Sparker igniter that uses a 9V battery and you just turn it on when starting up the gas water heater.
If the flame blows out, it automatically starts sparking to re-light the pilot, before the auto shut-off engages. Neat gadget that works well!
In my case, I bought it from auction site for about $25 with shipping. However, I think they are more than that regularly.
I also installed a Hott-Rod later, which is also OK.
Good luck.
