    Hi folks. Looking for a bit of advice please.

    I have a mixer shower coming from the hit water tank (no gas, all electric). The old mixer shower was leaking so a plumber came out and replaced the whole shower so we now have a new "rain" style shower.

    The problem is, in the morning, get in the shower and you can have a lovely hot shower for about 10 minutes before it starts to get cold. In the evening you get a shower for about 2 minutes before it goes freezing. It's like the hot water is running out? But there is still hot water coming running through bathroom/kitchen taps so I know it's not ran out. In the old shower I could easily get 3 x 10+ minute showers a day with plenty of hot water.

    We wondered if the new shower was just using more hot water, but it seems to be that it's somehow pulling cold water through after a short period of time.

    Any thoughts?
