Sykes assist local authority with sewer repair

Sykes Pumps were recently drafted in to provide a short-term pumping equipment to help overcome a burst combined sewer in Beckton, east London. It was therefore imperative that a swift pump hire solution was commissioned as soon as possible to over-pump the waste water back into the sewer system.

Soon after receiving the call, one of our engineers visited the site to conduct a free survey before recommending the best pump arrangement for their application. It was decided that an XFP301M 12” submersible pump – run on a 160kVA generator – would be the best solution to cope with sustained sewage flows.

Our experts delivered and installed the rental units within a matter of hours, quickly restoring the functionality of the entire system. Our pump was connected to the customer’s sewer system and ensured the sewer remained functional while work was carried out.

Our quick response and expertise ensured our client’s expectations were exceeded and ensured repairs could take place without causing disruption to nearby businesses.
