We have a 1700sq ft home with two bathrooms. Our master shower and master sinks take a long time to warm up, and then its only moderately warm. We also have a guest bathroom that has a shower and sink where the hot water gets to a temp that most people would say is hot. Both showers use a Mixet setup.
We have had a plumber out who said it was simply the distance from the water heater that is the cause of our Master shower issue. My question is why doesn't the Master shower/sinks get HOT when the guest baths do? My wife and I are at a loss.
Our water heater is 11yrs old and was flushed out within the last year by a reputable plumber.
Please help.

Have you checked to see if you have a external mixing valve in the master bath separate from the faucets?
