Hi all,

One simple question : according to you, what is the most suitable key to
use to map pumps?
A device intended to raise pressure level of any fluid.

man_made=pump why not
amenity=pump not at all
pipeline=pump pumps aren't always related to a pipeline (but would be a
relevant add beside pipeline=valve)

As we have power=generator, we may try water=pump. Well, pumps aren't
always related to water

pump=* already exists to state how a given pump is powered (or not)
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:pump
But it's focused on water wells while we find pumps in way more other
places with really different sizes.

We miss a key to map devices actually.

All the best
Fran├žois
