What you can do is maybe plug one of these extension cables to the switch to kill both your pump and ato at the same time

The jebao pumps actually come with their own float switch too so if the water levels gets too low then it'll cut the power to the pump.

Having a float switch in the sump and in the display tank will give you more reassurance.
I like this idea. Simple.

Is your tank glass?
I believe so.

I am going to look into purchasing a new tank if I can line up a buyer for my current tank. If I can find someone interested in my current tank than I may go ahead and purchase a new one that’s set up for a sump.
 

How's your tank currently looking?
