leak detector power shut off

hello, I am trying to figure out how to use a leak detector alarm and route the alarm leads to a 110v or 220v relay at 15a so that when the alarm activates, the power supply to a pump would be shut off. the alarm voltage would be rather low. not sure what relate . my to use or exactly how. any ideas? any help always appreciated. thanks!

Take a look at the Fotek SSR series solid state relay for your final control element. This is "solid state relay" rated 3-30v control and acts like a contact output rated 24-380 vac. It's a triac switch with an optical coupler so output is optically isolated from the input
