The wire I've seen used is:

"Twisted Type TW Thermoplastic PVC Submersible Pump Cable"

Its 3 or 4 individual SOLID wires but all twisted together. The twisted package allows for some flexibility although there shouldn't be much movement of the pump anyway.

See if the store can get this wire.

There is enough movement or twist in some that it will rub the insulation off. I know because it happened to me. We used the standard twisted cable pump wire, don't know the size, but after about a year we had to replace it. It rubbed the insulation off by the twisting of the pipe on the rocks we assumed, by the way the wire was tore up. Replaced with a heavier, harder, outside insulated wire which lasted. The well was about 400' deep and we went through a lot of shale and really hard rock and we assumed that was the reason for the failure of the first wire.

Hey T3.

That is interesting. Almost seems that if the casing shifted it would be some kind of seismic activity.
