We have a hot water problem and I would love to have an idea of what the problem and solution is before wasting a bunch of money on a plumber.

So we have a plumber, and he's good, but he's not cheap, so I was hoping you guys could trouble shoot with us before I call him. So we have hot water, it's just... not enough and inconsistent. So in the morning, the first shower is... not very warm. The second shower used to be nice and hot. This morning, alas, not so much. It was warm, but not hot. So basically, sometimes we have nice hot water but it seems to need to be primed to work correctly and it might be going downhill. We are assuming we need a new water heater. Are we right? And is that something we should buy before bringing the plumber in so we can only pay for one visit? Or are we going to want him to come by first?
