For AC motors you would need a relay circuit. The PowerSwitchTail contains a relay and an interface to drive from an Arduino: http://www.adafruit.com/products/268

For measuring water levels, the Maxbotix Weather Resistant sensor would be the best choice: http://www.adafruit.com/products/1137

Any Arduino can control these devices. An UNO is a good choice: https://www.adafruit.com/products/50
