Any suggestions would be greatly appreciatted.
Hi. I just want to make sure I understand correct. You mean your running out of hot water quickly if someone use's the hot water before you get in. If that's the problem I would say it sounds like one of the elements is either burnt out. If its new though that sounds like it shouldn't be the problem.
Did you have a plumber put it in for your or you hooked it up. I'm from canada so I'm not sure if your hot water tanks work the same as ours. But we have 2 elements and if the second one wasn't hooked up, (wired) that's why you would have some hot water, but would run out if you us to much.
Or if you mean your showering and someone turns the water on somewhere else in the house, it sounds like you don't have pressure balanced taps.
