I put cat 6 into my house 12 years ago.
Now it's proving to have been worth the install ( was rewiring and replimbing at the time anyway)

What with smart TVs and set top boxes the points have come in handy!

What about a tp link socket 25 from amazon.
Put a plug on the pump and plug it in, the app has schedules for on off times.
So rather than lights going on and off it's the pump!

and difference to cat5e?
i fluke test and am hard pushed to see difference on industrial sites let alone for telly.
the central "hard core" causes massive issues when pulling in, especially multi pulls.

It needs to turn on when the wiring centre demands the pump be on, noton a predefined time schedule - otherwise it would be easy with just a timer.  Transformer should be under 5, POE injector already have, an SSR looks to be around 10 (though some are only around 2.50 (can they be trusted though...) so cost wise the solution using the existing CAT6 looks the best option, it is also probably the simplest which is always a big plus.

I put cat 6 in, as I was using it on a bank install, and the drums were getting chucked, so they came home with me
