  • Also make sure that the isolator controlling the water heater is not switched off. This switch is normally installed close to the water heater.
  • Check the ripple relay switch. Some houses have this switch installed by ESKOM, this allows to switch off your water heater during peak times. this “black box” is situated next to your electrical switch. Switch position A - Geyser on
    Switch position B - Geyser off (ripple effect on)
