      Here is a list of some of the items I can think of:
      A motor to power the pump(s), heating element(s), a transformer to convert the mains to dc for some parts, a circuit board containing transistors, resistors, capacitors and various other electronic components, various wiring and mechanical switches, light emitting diodes for the displays. Automated valves, perhaps with solenoids or servo motors. Thermocouples for measuring the temperature, a water level sensor, a timer.
