thermocouple problems

Can anyone here tell me how to lower my pilot light on a peerless gas boiler? I go thru about 3 thermocouples a season. Thanx

Some gas valves have a pilot adjustment screw but I suspect your problem is actually caused by either a reamed out or incorrectly sized pilot orifice. Are you using propane or natural gas? If you can provide the boiler model number, I may be able to find the correct orifice size for you.
