Electrical Question

Triton shower goes boiling hot and then freezing

Hi, i am having major issues with my electric shower. In order to get it to work i need to turn the dial to the hottest setting and then i can hear it boiling like a kettle and then turn it down really slowly until i get the temperature i want. However, if you turn it to fast it goes freezing cold and you need to switch it off and start all over. I notified my landlord of the issue and i had a new shower installed last week but I am having the exact same issue. I couldn't even get it to work at all this morning i.e. i turned it up to the max setting it was boiling and then a turned it down a little and it went back to being freezing!!! PLEASE HELP :)

From the description you have given it sounds like a water pressure problem
