Case Study

Sykes provide emergency wastewater pumping solution

When one of Britain’s largest water suppliers suffered a collapsed sewage pipe, it was imperative that action was taken quickly to prevent further damage and contamination.

A local pump hire specialist based in the area was sent to site to assess the problem and decided that the best course of action was to recommend a 150mm super silenced diesel pump, along with 100 metres of hose.

The pump hire package effectively intercepted the flow of wastewater and pumped it to the nearest manhole, whilst the sewage pipe was fully repaired.

By implementing a temporary pumping solution within a few hours of receiving the enquiry, we were able to keep the wastewater flowing and avoid any pollution. The customer was extremely pleased once the over-pumping package was commissioned and complemented us for arriving on site so promptly.
