using rain sensor terminal to control pump

Can I use the rain sensor terminals to attach a device that will cut my pump off when current increases or decreases beyond some preset levels? If so, any ideas on what device and where to get it? This could be an indication that the well is dry, the pump sucked in a rock, or the output filter is clogged(most likley of the three)? Or should I consider some sort of flow switch to turn the pump off when there is no flow (The only problem with this method is that there be no flow when the pump is "off" so it would hold the pump "off" unless there was a delay circuit or pull up resistor of some sort).
Thanks for any info,
