I've wired it up i have power only going to the receiver when the backpack is turned on which is good, the only thing is when i turn the backpack on the pump doesn't turn on until i press the transmitter so i am reliant on that 

That's because it's connected to the NO (Normally Open) connection. If you connect to NC (Normally Closed) then it will work even if you forget the remote or battery dies. Then the remote will disconnect the power to the pump. It will use power when not pumping water but it's miniscule and as long as you switch BP off when not in use then no problem.

Can you post some high quality crystal clear photos of your relay wiring and the backpack integration

I'll have another go later today with what Ched suggested and swap around the NO to the NC.

I'll update later 👍

Just ensure all your connections are secure and insulated away from moisture etc.

 

Another happy customer 

Ched and I should get royalties
