A powered pump for pumping water

A powered pump for pumping water, comprising: a power means positioned above the water to be pumped and having a rotatable power shaft extending downwardly therefrom; a substantially vertically disposed drive line shaft having upper and lower ends; said upper end of said drive line shaft being connected to said power shaft of said power means for rotation therewith; a substantially vertically disposed casing, having upper and lower ends, extending around said drive line shaft; a pump housing, having upper and lower ends; said upper end of said pump housing being connected to said lower end of said casing; a water pump positioned in said pump housing which is connected to said drive line shaft; said casing having at least one water inlet formed therein above said pump housing for permitting water to enter the interior of said casing; the interior of said casing being in fluid communication with the interior of said pump housing; a water discharge line having inlet and discharge ends; said inlet end of said water discharge line being in fluid communication with the discharge side of said water pump; said water discharge line extending upwardly from said water pump to a location remote from the water to be pumped; said casing having a plurality of vertically spaced-apart water inlets formed therein.
