As the country’s longest established pump hire provider, we use our experience to provide our customers with the most sophisticated and cost-efficient innovations available. We understand that infrastructure doesn’t sleep, so by being a genuine 24 hours a day business, our engineers can deliver the level of service demanded across the whole of the UK, whatever time day or night. Whether you seek technical advice, equipment recommendations or urgent assistance , Sykes Pumps will deliver on all counts.
Our pumping specialists have specific experience of your sector which has been developed over many years. As such, we can be relied upon to provide a workable solution to the most challenging of problems. All pumping solutions are devised with budget constraints, application needs and any other limiting factors in mind, ensuring the most efficient, appropriate hire package is installed on your site.
We understand the importance of health, safety and environmental considerations, particularly where water and waste are concerned, and we employ a specialist team to ensure that we are constantly exceeding the expected standards. Our efforts have earned us all the relevant ISO standards and we continue to innovate to ensure our clients are at the forefront of their own sectors. As an example, we were the first to offer an environmental pump for hire which runs on bio-diesel.
The need to divert a flow of water or waste is a common yet challenging problem our clients face on a regular basis. This may be the result of a leak in a water pipe or sewer main, or simply the need to undertake work due to local construction projects.
Whatever the requirement, we have a wealth of experience in managing these difficult applications.
We always begin the process with site meetings between our specialists, site managers and the end user client, if appropriate. At this stage, different ways of approaching the problem based on criteria such as local conditions (especially residential and traffic considerations), flow rates and accessabilty will be discussed with the best option offered for consideration.
Options would include the different advantages or otherwise of submersible versus diesel pumps, the size and quantity of the pumps, the size and positioning of pipework and considerations such as automatic control of the pumps and site attendance by our engineers. Once the solution is agreed the relevant risk assessments and method statements will be prepared for sign off and the delivery date and time agreed. From that point on our clients can relax, safe in the knowledge that the project will be managed by the Sykes Pumps team.
There will be times when, due to the result of infrastructure damage or failure, there is simply not the time to consider and discuss all the different options, especially when the problem occurs at an unsociable hour or during peak times. In these circumstances we are just one phone call away, whatever the time of day or night, and will use our expertise to resolve the immediate problem with the minimum of fuss. Once the temporary solution is in place, we will then review how the system could perhaps be improved to either reduce the hire costs or improve site conditions.
At Sykes we understand that our customers purchase or inherit electric submersible pumps from a range of manufacturers. Whilst we cannot hold every pump type and size manufactured, we profile our fleet to match the most common units in the market and hold accessory components so that our pumps can be adapted to suit most situations.
Guide rail installation presents a particular challenge of having pumps to match the installed coupling system, and this is why we have invested considerable time in designing our guide rail adaption kits to make our fleet as universal as possible. This ensures our pumps can easily replace whichever type of sewage pump is being removed.
As standard, our XFP ranges of waste water pumps are ATEX approved for use in gas Zone II hazardous areas and are fitted with premium efficiency IE3 rated motors making our fleet extremely versatile. Whether you need a temporary pump whilst your own is under repair or whilst you await a replacement unit, call Sykes Pumps for an immediate solution.
