I suggest that you use each PID just to maintain temperature, and perhaps to trigger an alarm if your temperature strays to far from the setpoint. Use the timers also to trigger the alarm when time is up. You can use a single alarm buzzer/light. That, any other other switches or indicator lights would be powered separately from the PIDs and timers. For example, to have an indicator light illuminated when the element is on, you would wire a 240v LED in parallel with the element.
What electrical service do you have there? Even 5500w at 240v is going to take a long time to heat up 200 gallons. What temperature are you trying to achieve?
You should be able to run dual 240v/120v using one of the 240v hots and the neutral, assuming you have a 4-wire (H-H-N-G) feed.
Have you read through www.theelectricbrewery.com?
Study that and you will have a much better understanding of how to approach this.
