Depends on your element. Are there no markings on the housing area for the element?
My element for a 150l geyser is rated at 3Kw at 15 Amps as an example. Hooked up to a Sonoff POW and i can check max draw

That's what I'm trying to do, so a basic or a dual wont work. I'll take my POW 25A off the pool pump and put a basic on there rather. That way I am safe

Usually
100l = 2kW,
150l = 3kW,
200l = 4kW,
But it depends on the manufacturer, although it won't be higher.

A basic or a dual definitely won't work for the amperage
My 150l is rated at 15A - max draw I see is around 14A whenever the switch turns on the geyser (set on a timer)
The POW works perfectly for the use case
