Pump Start Relay Control

Is there a wireless control for a pump start relay. My system has no wires run from the controller to the pump. The pump is always on and just shuts off when pressure switch is tripped (like a well pump) but there is no expansion tank so the pump starts about every 10 minutes and shuts off after a few seconds. Certainly will burn out the pump soon. Would like to add a pump start relay but need a wireless way to control from the timer in the garage (24vac pump control terminal).

A pump that starts at ten minute intervals is not going to overheat or be subject to the same kind of damage that a pump that short-cycles (starting more than once a minute) will be.

We won't have it.
A quick search on 'wireless pump relay' turned up a company called Remote Control Technology in Redmond Wa. that offers some.
No idea of price or requirements.

I wonder why the absence of a pressure tank. Even a tiny one is better than nothing. It is true that a long poly-pipe mainline has some slight expansion capability, but you try not to depend on it.
