Steamiest steam shower will not reach temperature over

Steamiest steam shower will...

Steamiest steam shower will not reach temperature over 100degrees and it takes forever. Brand new SM-9.

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

New SM-9 was installed a month ago. I think it worked the way I remember (big gusts of steam) for about a week. Now it’s gentle steam that slowly raises the temperature,

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No. Just need to know what part of the system has failed. Nearest authorized repair is 57 mikes away and it’s $175 to have them visit. Helps to know what’s going on.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don’t think so.
