Need programming suggestion

I have a float switch in my Kalk dosing bucket when its empty need a pump in a mixing bucket to come on for 1.20 minutes to fill the dosing bucket then shut off. How can I accomplish this?

Sorry forgot to mention I have a apex system. This may seem simple command "If Switch Closed then on" but the problem is the switch is at the bottom of the bucket. When the water starts filling the pump will prematurely shut off need it to stay running for one minute and twenty seconds then shut off.

Almost positive this will work, but test it before you trust it. Notice there is no set command. So when Switch activates the outlet will come on and run for 1.20 then shut off

Fallback OFF
If SwitchX Closed Then ON
If SwitchX Open Then OFF
Min Time 001:20 Then ON
