Pilot light will not stay lit. already replaced thermal coupler. 6 gallon

A thermocouple makes 30MV power by a temperature differential across the end of the thermocouple, many times people set the entire end inthe flame heating the entire end thus dropping out the power, you cannot bake them into working there must be a temperature differential from the base to tip about a 1.5 inch section. It wil not work correctly if the entire end is hot.

Otherwise the gas valve is bad.

Should the return line come into drain of water heater or cold in.

Your question is not complete.
You have gas water heater in attic?
You are installing recirculation system? Which recirculation do you have? .. so expert can read instruction manual alongside you.
You can connect the recirc return line to the water heater drain valve only IF you have plumbed a separate return line for that installation.
Otherwise, the recirculation return line recirculates into the cold water inlet on water heater.
Copy following link for general illustrations showing both types of installation.

Try spraying some WD-40 in hole where thermocouple attaches to gas valve, then twirl a small piece of steel wool in your fingers and insert it in that same hole and twirl it as you push it in to clean surface where thermocouple makes contact. Then blow out with compressed air if possible and then re-install thermocouple fitting snuggly. If that doesn't do it, you'll have to get a new gas valve/control.

Hard starting have changed fuel filter four times in two weeks

Either carry a lot of fuel filters or drain the fuel tank after it sits for a full two days, You have water in the fuelor a ton of algae. Confirm the water by pouring out the fuel filter. Any water will be obvious. The water in the tank will separate from the fuel if left standing. Then the water can be drained out the bottom of the tank.Water in the fuel can blow tips off injectors so take heed. and good luck.If you don't have a fuel water seperator, consider having a RACOR separater installed.
