This phenomenon is referred to as “temperature run down”. This happens when the colder water during the night mixes with the hot water in the top portion of the tank. The tank does not loose heat, however overall temperature will be lower due to this mixing of different water temperature.
If rain continues for a few days, it is necessary to turn the built-in electric heater on. Else, a short period of rainfall should not affect the hot water supply.
No, the booster acts as back up. It does not switch on during a typical fine day. It will only operate when the temperature drops below 50 °c, the booster will shut off automatically. With manual over-ride switch, you can control the booster when preferred.
