Pilot light on AO Smith promax hot water tank

The pilot light keeps going out no matter much I clean the front filter and underneath, under the tank. Is there anything else I could do or is there a special tool to use?

Pilot light on AO Smith promax hot water tank

How long does it stay lit for? If it goes out when you release the pilot knob, then your thermocouple is probably bad.
