Sykes Pump Hire recreates African waterfall

Sykes Pumps are no strangers to the country’s most famous television and film studios. Our wide range of equipment enables our clients to produce special effects and scenes that require huge volumes of water.

In this instance, our technicians were called in to assist with the creation of an African waterfall for a famous action adventure movie. In order for this vision to become a reality and to look as authentic as possible, we supplied our client with six High Performance pumps which were housed in silenced canopies. As well as this, a large quantity of high pressure pipework was needed and fitted around the set itself.

This film set pump hire arrangement was ideal for the project at hand as the client sought quiet units to avoid any interference with the recording process.

Our team was able to provide a pumping rental solution suitable for special effects, making it possible for the producers to capture a breath-taking scene that exceeded expectations.
