Customer Question

We just installed a new gas water heater. Two of us took a shower (me last of course), not long showers and the water started getting cool. It's a 50 gallon. What could be causing this?

There is another shower. We are usually showering around the same time, but I am in the other bathroom with the 2nd shower finishing last. So I don't know if it is just my shower, or just because I finish last. Also, haven't checked to see when I get out if the water is luke warm/cold any were else in the house.
