The recovery rate of your water heater is too slow and the size of the tank is too small. If space allows you should increase the size of the tank. You may also want to install a high recovery water heater that is designed to heat faster.

Your children are using up all the hot water in the tank. You'll either need to limit the amount of time your children take a shower or install a larger tank in your home. Older hot water tanks take longer to recover water than the newer models do. If you can't afford a new tank then it is best to have your children take a shower 30 minutes after the first child took their shower. This will give your hot water heater a bit more time to recover and recycle the hot water.

This will happen when you use too much hot water and the cylinder will slow heating process. Sometimes it does happen in our house, when we use too much hot water and when we go to shower the hot water is very low and it doesn't even hot its warm. During the winter, it will more happen too because during this time we going to use hot water more often. And the cylinder can't keep upon it.What you have to do is used less hot water, you have to set it into lower hot temperature to avoid any burn. Only use recommended temperature of the water plus, using hot water too often will increase your electric bill.  The maximum level for water temperature is 60-70 Celcius degrees this will enough  kill the bacteria.

And also there might be a problem with your cylinder, you better get it check.

Kids don't like warm baths when the weather is hot, of course, they want a cold bath to refresh themselves. This is same goes with us. I think they will prefer warm bath or the mixture of hot and cold. Did you already tried it? Hot bad is irritable but it can loosen up some stress in their body and for sure, even if they perspire, all the hot feeling, the pain in the muscle and of course, stress will all be gone. I remember my nephew, he was bathe with warm water. He felt sleepy after because he felt tired already because of the hot bath experience. When he is bathe with cold water he is playful. Maybe that is their complains or problem. Better to ask your kids of what is the real problems and you go in the middle to solve this problem.

Gas hot water heaters. If you have a gas hot water heater, then your problem may be caused by a leak in the gas line leading to the appliance. ... In the case of not enough hot water, or hot water that is not hot enough, it may be that you need to replace the heating element on your water heater. Sediment buildup.

The outlet for hot water heater into your home is also at the top of the tank. So a broken dip tube can mean cold water goes into your home's hot water pipes before being adequately heated. Another cause of hot water not being hot enough is sediment buildup in the water heater tank.

But noticing this type of issues are indications that you need a plumber. Regular plumbing checks up an essential approach to every home and business. I recommend to call in a plumber or I would personally suggest Langley Plumbing since I have experienced their top quality work.

There are the different size of water heaters, it might be due to the small tank size of the water heater. You can go for the tank-less water heaters which are also used as on demand hot water and its connected with the plumbing system. So, you don't have to worry about the flow of the water. Only make sure that the water storage is enough to provide you a continues supply of water. Old water heaters are neither energy-efficient nor provide an uninterrupted supply of hot water.

Your water heater has small capacity and/or long recovery time. You can install an "on demand" heater that will give any amount of hot water. You would tell the plumber to leave the old heater in place and install the new one going only to the tub.
