Sykes supply exclusive fishing lake with pump hire arrangement

At Sykes Pumps, we routinely provide temporary hire solutions to fishing lakes, rivers and other natural watercourses while adhering to the strict environmental legislation in place. Sykes’ widely experienced engineers have worked on aeration projects, dredging schemes and silt removal applications on countless occasions, which is why our services are so sought after within the sector.

Our ability to provide 24/7 service and out-of-hours assistance are two of many reasons why fisheries around the UK make us their first port of call when problems arise.

It was this confidence that prompted the proprietors of a popular fishing lake in Kent to contact us after their pumps on site failed unexpectedly. They sought a suitable replacement to supersede their faulty units to allow normal day-to-day activity to continue at one of the country’s most exclusive fisheries.

A technical expert visited the lake to familiarise themselves with the application before recommending the most appropriate unit from our expansive pump hire fleet. Two specialist submersible pumps were proposed and delivered promptly to ensure the potential for unwanted downtime was averted.

Club member Lee Jackson, who is arguably one of the UK’s most famous carp anglers and winner of the 2017 World Carp Classic in France, was full of praise for Sykes Pumps after the installation was carried out.

He said: “I’m very happy with the swift response of Sykes Pumps and the equipment they provided despite the short notice. When the lakes’ own pumps broke down out of the blue, we were desperate to find a reliable supplier that we could trust.

“The two replacement pumps were up and running in no time and played a vital role in restoring normal service for the lake and its members.”
