pilot light on water heater keeps going out

my parents have a 2 year old gas water heater...

the pilot keeps going out after a period of time...they had someone come out last night about 8:00 pm to relight it...

now it is 9:00 am...it has gone out again...

any ideas on why the pilot keeps going out???

seeing as the heater is 2 years old, it should have a sealed combustion chamber and a piezo igniter. if that's the case, it should also have some sort of high temp. shut off. what brand water heater is this?

the service tech that came out just relit the heater and didn't change anything? did they charge for this "service"?
