Water scarcity is the serious issue in major cities. It is a common problem which is faced by every house owner, that when his tank is empty he has to switch on the motor and switch the motor off when it is full. Due to the busy life it is common that the tank usually overflows without notice. One has to keep on observing his tank water level to switch off the motor once it is switched on. And sometimes this also can happen that the motor coil burns because of absence of water in the sump. So these are the everyday problem that motivated us in coming up with an affordable, wireless automatic water level control system that doesn’t need any attention once it is installed. In this paper we have discussed about design and implementation of water level control system which is wireless, automatic, cost effective and reliable. It uses two Radio Frequency transceivers along with a controller each installed at the tank and sump. Radio Frequency transceivers are used for wireless communication. It is completely automated with the help of a micro controller. The system doesn’t need any attention of the user unless the sump is empty. Installation cost is reduced since the system is wireless. It is reliable because it has no problems arising after installation such as breakage of wire .
