Sykes Pumps features on one of the country’s most popular television soaps

Last week, avid viewers of one of the country’s most popular television soaps may have spotted a Sykes Pumps General Purpose unit being used as a prop on set.

With the dramatic storyline unfolding, our pump was set up to dredge a body of water which – known to those watching at home – was being used to conceal two corpses that were dumped by the plot’s protagonist.

Interestingly, Sykes Pumps was contacted off the back of our client coming across a previous case study in which we detailed using our equipment on a different TV show. On that occasion, our pumps assisted the creation of special effects for a particular scene.

This latest requirement was slightly more unusual because our pump was actually needed within the context of the storyline itself.

In the scene, the project manager can be heard giving an operator some technical instructions on how to use the pump.

Fortunately – as experts in the provision of hired pump solutions across any industry – we at Sykes Pumps ensure our equipment is fully functional and operating at the expected level before leaving your site!

Our pump hire equipment is regularly deployed across a broad range of environments, and we are experienced in supplying pumps for TV and film production. For more information on the products we offer, and how they can benefit you, call us today on 0800 211 611.
