So the pump will be inside the box with your electrical? To me, this seems unsafe if your pump has a seal or head failure.

Edit/// nevermind, I see that you decided not to.

Did you get this build done? Would like to see completed pictures of the inside if you have them. I am thinking about using a toolbox for the enclosure and not understanding what you are talking about the back panel.

If you run out of space, consider using a single contactor to enable/disable 220v power to the panel and the element. Even if you have 2 switches, you could connect them in series.

You could protect the PID and pump with fuses and connect them upstream of the contactor and downstream of the estop if they are <10amps.
