In residential areas, it’s common for contractors to want a de-watering system that’s fast and efficient, but also very quiet.
To install soakwells and build retaining walls, this local contractor created a wellpoint system over 50 metres in length, with nearly 50 individual spears driven at least 6m into the ground. And it’s all within a stone’s throw of residents who have already moved-in to their new homes.
“With residents just metres away from earthworks, a pumping solution that minimised noise was paramount” said Sykes Group Territory Manager Alex Pellicano.
To drive their system, they wanted to be 100% sure they were getting the best all-round pumping package. So, they decided on a competitive test or trial first, reaching out to Sykes Group and one other local pump supplier.
“In a competitive market, it’s becoming more common for clients to ask for a test drive” said Alex. In fact, he welcomes the opportunity and will often let clients know that the “try before you buy option is available”.
Curve for curve, Sykes Group is the best.
“We’re very confident Sykes Group pumps will out-perform any other machine available. In fact, bring it on” challenged Alex “we love to see a comparative test – when our performance curves are laid on the table and compared with any other machine, the results speak for themselves”
Alex said that the free trial concept “makes absolute sense for companies before they commit to a major purchase.
“For this particular job, we recommended a pump with Acoustic Covering from our Contractors Range and they collected the heavy-duty QSWD150i low head model from our Landsdale yard” he explained. “They’ve been testing the system for a week or two now and all indications show our pump has more than matched their expectations”.
There’s been no worries with the dewatering process and the customer is delighted with the AllighSykes product. “I’m confident that with their Sykes Group Pump, they’ve found a long-tern dewatering partner” added Alex. “When they’ve completed this on-site trial, I’m looking forward to assisting them with their complete pumping requirements”.
The Contractors range is designed to meet the robust demands of the construction, mining and rental industries. “With pump efficiencies of up to 81%, they provide faster and more efficient pumping resulting in big savings for the end user” said Alex.
