Havent seen one of them in years, can you still buy them? 

The live wire to the stove goes through the first contact and the live wire to the geyser through the second if I remember correctly, last time i saw one was about 20 years back. When you switch one stove plate or element on the supply to the Geyser gets disconnected.

It's essentially an internal load-shedding solution to keep your own peak consumption down, by ensuring that two high-consumption appliances are not on at the same time. Eg Stove and Geyser. These days, a function like this could be integrated into something like a geyserwise.

The new model is called a "load-shedding relay", basically stop any power going to a certain appliance during certain times as well as when something else is drawing power.

After that item, lets say primary geyser shuts of, it will supply power again within 15 minutes.

Cost is over R 1 000, I have one installed, nice to have but not really needed if your timing/timers are working properly. If not, then you might see this as a need.
