4500W Heating Elements (2)
PID - $45 from auberins.com
SSR - $10 on ebay
dryer cord - $10 at home depot
dryer receptacle - $5 at home depot
temp probe - $20 on ebay
box to put it all in - $15 at lowes
power switch and receptacle for pump - $7 at home depot
power switch for turning element on and off - maybe $10 at home depot
...
Just be aware, dryer cords and outlets are generally 3 wire devices. They deliver 240V and ground - No neutral.
