Oh so the Timer is powering a contactor? Well that is why. You measuring the power usage of the contactor now.Thanks, did that last night and could see that apart was being drawn on the prepaid box, so geyser was running.
I'm thinking the issue could be related to the contactor, bottom right of the pic I posted.
For info, the geyser circuit breaker is situated 3 slots to the left of the contactor.
You need to remove the contactor and put the geyser directly on the timer (CBI Astute).
Geyser connection should be mains -> breaker -> timer -> wire out to isolator (next to geyser in roof) -> geyser
