comment How to ensure that water heater is mostly on or mostly off?
It also appears that "ON" and "OFF" are relative, depending on how the device is wired. According to the label, in one position the contact is closed between terminal 1 and 2, and in the other position the contact is closed between terminals 2 and 3. So you can say that terminal 2 is "common", and will have the incoming feed connected to it. The line feeding the heater will either be connected to terminal 1 or 3. Do you have any idea which terminal the wire feeding the heater is connected to?

The little blue knob thing in the upper left of the dial is labeled as the "contact status display switch", which I would assume means that it displays the status of the contact. In the current photo it appears to be in the OFF position. Does this knob turn or move when the tabs are in the opposite position?

Does the heater have a thermostat, or is it always heating when the timer is on?

@HenryJackson I think you're right. In the photo, it's hard to tell which tabs are pushed in (especially on a small phone screen).
