    Hi

    I would say a geyser is not allowed on a mixed circuit and back the statement up with 6.16.2.2 pasted below

    6.16.2 Water heaters
    NOTE Water heaters include geysers, instantaneous water heaters including units
    for boiling water, heat pumps, solar systems, induction water heaters and the like (see
    also 6.16.1). electrode water heaters, steam generators and boilers are not included
    (refer to 6.16.7)
    6.16.2.1 All water heaters shall be bonded in accordance with 6.13 and shall
    be protected by earth leakage protection with IΔn not exceeding 30 mA.
    NOTE To mitigate nuisance earth leakage tripping, an additional earth leakage may
    be provided.
    6.16.2.2 Dedicated circuits shall be provided for water heaters and there
    may be more than one water heater on each circuit
