comment Trouble with solid state relay
You do realize that the voltage of the sensor is independent of the actual load it's switching, right? The red / black wires are what the sensor itself needs to operate, in order to close the yellow wires. Have you applied a voltage to one yellow wire and connected the common of that source to the common of the relay, and the other yellow wire to the voltage in of the relay?

Eek, you might have dissolved the enamel over the ceramic glaze - how old is the cast iron tub?
