Could use Float sensor/ Water Level Sensor for level detection in the tank, and could control the water pump using microcontroller system

I have something like the product in the link below connected to a submersible pump to get water out of a small tank and into a nearby drain. No microcontroller though.

Thank you Jibin Lukose Gerry DeSeve i just been design a fully mechanical system. a weight which is attached with switch and it will turn switch ON when water tank reaches to certain low level and another floating ball or something supported with pulley which will turn it OFF when tank crosses certain up level.

But the problem is with voltage drop … i meant system will switch
ON the pump whenever tank got empty whether voltage is enough or not and it may effect the borepump 😴 … and here i’ve to further use a microcontroller. kindly suggest any idea regarding this!
