Does anyone know if you can use a function similar to the moon light cycle to power pumps like a wave maker??

You can use the Moon statement to make pumps go on and off in phase w/ the lunar cycle if desired.

The moon cycle varies the intensity of the light as well. Doesn't that mean you could vary the elecity sent to any device as long as you connect it through the x10 light module???

Yes, the voltage would be varied to a lamp module that is being controlled by the lunar cycle. Definitely don't use a lamp module on a pump. Low voltage will not make the pump run slower. It will simply overheat and damage either the pump or the lamp module. Use a DC4/DC4HD, or X10 AM466 module for the pump instead.
