Our wide range of pumps for hire at Sykes Pumps


Here at Sykes Pumps, we offer a broad selection of pumps available for hire to suit a variety of applications. Whether you need a general purpose pump for construction, a super silent pump for noise-sensitive tasks, or specialty pumps for challenging environments, we have you covered.

Our automatic self-priming general purpose (GP) pumps can handle clean water, sludge and slurry pumping with ease. The GP range offers flexible solutions for fluid transfer, bypass pumping, tank emptying, and drainage across many different sectors.

For situations where low noise is crucial, our lineup of super silenced pumps provides clients with durable, quiet running units. The super silent pumps can be deployed successfully in residential areas, hospitals, office buildings, and anywhere that a low noise output is needed.

Known as pneumatic pumps, our range of air powered pumps are recognised throughout the industry for their exceptional reliability. Able to run dry without damage, the air pumps are a hardy choice for even the most demanding recipient applications.

Where high flows or pressures are required, our high performance pump range delivers. With models capable of flows up to 375 l/s, these heavyweight pumps are ideal for specialist applications like tank cleaning, pipe flushing, water jetting, and firefighting.

The Sykes Bentonite range features heavy duty pumps manufactured for use with high density slurries and drilling fluids in testing environments. One of our most robust pump selections, the Bentonite series offers outstanding performance when pumping abrasive media.

For drainage applications, our submersible drainage pumps provide variable flow rates and easy handling on site. Typically used on quarries, mines, construction sites, and shipyards, this adaptable range can reliably handle water, silt, and sludge.

Our hydraulic submersible pumps are a strong, lightweight solution capable of suction lifts exceeding nine metres. Their resilience against clogging makes them perfect for hazardous pumping environments where electricity is a risk.

For wastewater applications, Sykes offers over twenty different submersible wastewater pumps with flow rates up to 440 l/s. Providing cost-efficient and reliable pumping, this range is a versatile option for sewage treatment plants, effluent pits, water treatment facilities, and storm water applications.

Finally, our submersible sludge pumps are designed for fluids containing solids or with a higher viscosity. Intended for specialist applications in agriculture, industry, and municipal wastewater, these robust pumps can transport thick, gritty sludges with ease.
