    I want an indicator light for my element...

    Yup, just like it says.
    I'd like to put some sort of LED or indicator lamp so I know when my element is powered. It's a solar storage tank, but my question isn't really solar related.
    I stopped at Radio Shack but the kid didn't know much. So what type of lamp can I wire into a 240v loop? I'm sure it would have to be one helluva resistor if I wanted an LED, but that's why I'm asking....
    There must be some sort of way to provide indication that the element is powered.
