On the BCS kits, auto/manual is there for the pumps, just not for the elements. I wire the switches to control the SSRs to keep the controls simple, and wiring up simple. As for PIDs, there is no auto since there isn't anything to control with. As for PIDs, I believe the usual method is to just adjust the temp on the SSR, since you won't have a constant low voltage to control the SSR with.
