Cheap way to transmit tank level sensor to remote pump

Hi everyone -- I'm trying to set up a simple water tank level sensor system (float sensor for high and low level which will send a wireless signal to a relay to turn a borehole pump on or off (about 400f away).

 

I was looking at Zigby receiver-transmitter pair, but it all starts to get really expensive really quickly, and requires quite a lot of complexity ito connectig up the sensors and relay.

 

Has anyone got a cheap and simple approach -- I'd have thought this is a very common application. Something plug'n'play...

 

Cheers

Roger
