The submersible motor pump could have much more merits than the general pump such as higher exhaustion head, narrower installahon place, lower noise due to operating in the water and so on. But, so far, hydraulic mechanism of the axial thrust at impeller was not analysed quantitatively and so it is very difficult to solve the occuring problems. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to minimize the axial thrust acting on thrust bearing of submersible motor pump through the analysis of hydraulic mechanism of thrust and design rivision of impeller. Test carried out on the pump with an impeller 92mm in diameter, 6 balacing holes 10mm in diameter, showed the thrust is reduced by about 86% at the normal operating point.
