    Updates will work but is probably overkill IMO:* You don't need a relay for the pump. The 10A
    switch can directly turn power on/off for the 3A pump.* The relay/contactor on the power input
    and the ele...

    great prize.

    S2 wont work for Element Power, it is only rated for 10 amps.Look for a toggle switch that is
    rated for 20-30amps.Pump fuse (and wiring) will be determined by the pump power requirements.S1

    If you want to keep the PID capability consider adding a switch or contactor to power the

    run the SSVR a...

    search for voltage resistance SSR on ebay or amazon. This device can control power to the
    heating element. Add some 30 amp switchs (or a contactor) for the the on/off function and
    10-15amp switches ar...

    Search for Still dragon DIY controller. It is basically an SSR with a potentiometer to control
    the power to the element.
