Balkan Does Bronx Water Main Repair, Pond Is Connected To Golf CourseMarch 29, 2012 • By David Balkan
Some interesting info about this Bronx water main
As things developed and got more and more involved this repair became more and more unique. In performing NYC sewer repair and water main repair work for over 60 years Balkan never had to empty out a pond before! But that is what was needed at the golf course. A number of specialty pumps had to be brought in and run 24 hours around the clock in order to pump out the golf course pond – otherwise the broken water pipe could not be safely removed and repaired properly.
In addition once the defective pipe was uncovered it was found to be 18″ plastic pipe – a material and pipe size quite unusual in the NYC water main industry. Typically a water main line would not exceed 2″, no less 18″, and would not be made of plastic. Having great vendor relationships and knowing who would carry this specialty material was very helpful. The proper pipe and fittings were on-site the very next workday and the job proceeding seamlessly. Balkan Plumbing – Keeping your golf greens green!
