Default chugger pump with a switched outlet and constant outlet

thought this would help someone out there!
i've seen some people using the GFCI mini plugs to turn the pumps on and off, but i wanted something a little more fun and safer then holding the outlet in my hand. so i built this!

(don't mind the nasty table, it's my saw bench, note the cut marks )

Top one is switched via the switch on the right, and the bottom one is constant, which i need for extra crap during brew day.

and used this diagram, only ignore the extra outlet on the right.

thought it would come in handy for someone getting a chugger. or a wired march pump

Mine has both outlets run from the switch, but is very similar, I even run a chugger pump as well.
