Extend wires from water sensor?

I have two sump pump pits that I would like to monitor for high water, ie sump pump fails, so I get a notice hopefully before the pit(s) overflow.

Don't want to put the sensor in the pit so thinking I can extend wires from the sensor to go into the pit. Maybe even monitor both pits with wires extended from one sensor.

Offhand don't know why it wouldn't work. Someone probably tried it already.

Thoughts/opinions?

I'm sure this has been done and discussed that it works just fine.  Easy enough to jury-rig a temp set up and try it on your own.  Good luck!
