More information about vertical turbine pumps:

Vertical turbine pumps are centrifugal pumps designed to move water from a well or water distribution system that is deep underground. They work from above ground, using impellers to draw water up through the pump shaft.

Vertical turbine pumps are usually driven by electricity or a diesel engine through a right angle drive. They consist of at least one rotating impeller that is attached to a shaft and housed in an airtight casing.

Multi-stage versions use multiple impellers on the same shaft to create higher pressure. As the water enters the pump chamber, it is captured by the impellers of the turbine and accelerated to a higher rate of speed. And as the water accelerates and leaves the chamber, more water is drawn through the pump casing inlet.
