Sewage Diversion

Sewage Diversion

When a sewer prevents land development or the expansion of existing property, it is possible to make a temporary diversion if the relevant authorities agree. This potentially complicated process should be overseen by industry experts to guarantee its safe and proper execution. At Khansaheb Sykes, our qualified engineers are able to manage the entire procedure and will even recommend units most suitable for this particular application. When the diversion needs to be undertaken as a result of a broken sewer, then our emergency response kicks into action.

Typically, the need for emergency sewage diversion involves residential environments where pipes have burst and the resulting spillage represents a hazard to health. Our electrical pumps are ideal for these scenarios and can be delivered, installed and functional within hours of a problem being reported. They are also easily controlled by a number of methods including manually, float, ultrasonic or even speed regulation via variable speed drive panels. If generators or a power supply is unavailable then our fleet of super silenced diesel units ensure the same level of safety at low noise levels.

Our unrivalled success rate in responding to urgent issues makes us the country’s foremost supplier of pump units and accessories. We understand that, when something unexpected occurs, you need specialist staff who can tailor a solution accordingly and quickly.



The consequences of flooding are potentially crippling, with economic and environmental costs attached - as well as the devastating impact on people’s homes. Floods generally occur unexpectedly with little to no time for preparation, but Khansaheb Sykes will react to them quicker than anyone else. Our rapid response to setbacks on any scale means we can tackle the root cause to prevent your operation being brought to a complete standstill or to protect your valuable assets.

Our electric submersible drainer pumps have been manufactured with diverting water flows and sump pumping in mind, as well as general water transfers. They are very easy to manoeuvre and install thus allowing quick deployment - a vital feature, particularly during an intense flood. These units can be set up to work unattended for extended periods allowing those affected to concentrate on other tasks. As large flow generation pumps, significant quantities of water can be removed at any one time, reducing the effects of flooding.

As a company, we are committed to providing our customers with market-leading responses to water-related issues throughout the UAE. Our highly trained engineers work hard to understand your requirements and deliver the solution which meets your requirements.
