Sorry, but I didn't really find my answer with a search,in fact, I now have a new question. The wires to my three prong dryer outlets for my elements should be HOT, HOT and Ground? Not HOT, HOT and Neutral? Same for my 220V pump? And for all 3 I break one of the HOTs with my SSR?
Ok, so I really had four questions....

Because I bought it for $6 on ebay about 2 or 3 years ago....it's a March hi-temp, magnetic drive. If I could afford it I might have decided to just buy a new "regular" pump though..

Yes it's hot-hot-ground (no neutral). Ideally you should really try to break both legs (both SSRs).

well if you want a cheap solution for a 100% off manual solution, you can use a 220 volt 30 amp light switch, i have one for each of my elements, its not an automatic shutoff, but it is a clean break.
