Hi Michael,

Thank you for such interesting links :)
I was looking for established classification but most of time several
properties are mixed in attributes which is less usable.
My points below.

That sounds the most promising repository I could integrate to proposed
pump=* values.
Note that some proposed values already match this IEEE classification
(Wikipedia may took inspiration there)

Main problem of "Stainless Steel Deep Well Submersible Pump." is such a
name give many information, but let the mechanism unknown.
We've got material=*, submersible=yes/no and eventually man_made=water_well
but no corresponding value for pump=*
I've got the same issue with European INSPIRE classes as well in other

Once solved, this would be useful to give more details about a given pump=*
value in a further proposal.

All the best
