SOURCE: takes a long time to heat water
If you are using a 3/8" copper line for your gas, get it replaced ASAP. It will fail. 1/2" Black Iron is required with natural gas. 50 gallons is a lot of water to heat. Look on the heater label for the recovery rate.

Is it a new unit? If so, the safety mechanism may has tripped. If it is a GE built be Rheem, the safety device is a one time device - you have to replace the water heater. Check to maek sure you don't having a venting problem.

it could also be the dip tube. this is a tube that is installed at the time the unit is made.it is a plastic tube that is on the cold intake side of the hot water heater.it may have fallen inside the unit or may not be in the unit at all check to see if there is a plastic tube this will help the heater stay hotter for a longer period of time. good luck with your project.

SOURCE: Pilot will not relight properly
The thermocouple needs to be replaced. That is what keeps the pilot light lit. The thermocouple is the little metal probe that sticks up into the pilot flame. Very easy to replace.
