Heavy rain is not a problem for Sykes Pumps

Sykes Pumps recently executed a highly effective dewatering operation in Essex. The operation aimed to manage the rapid influx of groundwater into a lagoon after heavy rainfall. The location’s lagoon posed a significant challenge to the customer due to its tendency to accumulate substantial amounts of nuisance water during intense rainfalls. This rapid accumulation not only disrupted ongoing activities but also threatened the stability of the surrounding area. An immediate and effective water removal was necessary to maintain normal operations and prevent potential environmental issues.

The customer called upon Sykes Pumps to devise an effective dewatering strategy. Sykes Pumps’ sales engineer recommended the deployment of their 6″ Super-silenced pump, renowned for its robust performance in demanding conditions. The robust construction of the pump ensured durability and resistance against corrosion, making it an ideal choice for the wet and harsh conditions.

Sykes Pumps’ engineers meticulously set up the pump at strategic locations based on their comprehensive assessment of the water flow dynamics and potential pooling areas. The team ensured the pumps were primed and functioning optimally, ready to tackle the impending influx of water. The powerful pump capacity and reliable operation ensured continuous water removal, effectively mitigating the risk of flooding.

The effort of Sykes Pumps yielded remarkable results. Despite the rapid accumulation of unwanted groundwater, the lagoon’s water level was consistently managed within acceptable limits, preventing any disruption to the ongoing activities of the customer. The efficient dewatering operation not only showcased the capabilities of Sykes Pumps’ equipment but also highlighted the importance of timely and professional pumping solutions in managing water-related challenges.
