My water cylinder is set at 49 degrees but we are unable to adjust the shower control so the shower is too hot to take a shower. What can we do. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this shower issue?
Customer: For about six weeks.
JA: How long has this been going on with your shower? What have you tried so far?

JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The shower adjustment wheel seems to be not working.

You shouldn't set the cylinder temperature so low - it needs to be high enough to prevent Legionalla bacteria from multiplying.

Your shower has a fault. If you tell me the make and model, I can give you guidance on that.
