Remote relay switch

I have a system with 2 controllers and a lake pump. Right now I am using a pressure switch to kick the pump on. I am going through a lot of switches and impellors.

Here is my question.

Both controllers have a Master Valve option. One controller is very close to the pump but the other is too far to feasibly trench for a control line.

Is there a way to hook up a remote transmitter to the master valve leads to activate a relay switch at the pump? And if so, how do I find this equipment?

Over-the-air transmitters no. Powerline transmitters, like the x10 system, yes.
But this is all a bandaid, since you should have a better control setup. Consider a pressure tank in conjunction with a pressure switch.
