In 2006, Sykes Group sold a number of QSPCP200 (Quiet Solution) pumps to a South Australian government department. The pumps have been commissioned to take water from one of the Murray River tributaries and discharge it onto the dry flood planes. The result is, its not only saving the old river red gums but bringing life back to trees.

The lake pictured is the result of eight days pumping, 24 h a day, and transferring 640 million litres, to replicate a natural flood.

Quiet Solution pumps can be easily accessed for maintenance and have the distinct advantage of being extremely quiet, at 62 dBA at seven m while operating at full load.
