I have always seen solid wire used on submersible pumps, but I did have one break once. It was probably from improper installation, the pump was down 135 feet and it broke right above the pump. It was also hanging on 160 lb plastic water line (designed for pumps) so the pump probably moved a bit when starting. I shortened everything a couple of feet and taped it together real well and it ran fine.

Pump outfits sell a wire specifically for submersible pumps- can't recall whether its solid or stranded (I'm thinking solid), but was color coded and had very thick, pliable insulation. Single strands, zip tied together, IIRC.
