Autofeed water supply for fountain

Hi All, We have an 8’ marble fountainin with a burned out pump, extremely hard to remove, we want to setup an external pump to supply the fountain using the current water supply and bypassing the burned out pump.
Problem: how would one install an auto shutoff to control the water supply?

A water shutoff would have to be a mechanical float valve or an electrical float that operated an electric valve.

You could also use an electric float to stop the pump when the water is low.
