One might expect that when they need a water main replacement due a leak on the line it may take up to 24 hours just to get a quote on the water main work. Recently a homeowner called Balkan sewer and water main service for a Bronx water main replacement and the actual work was completed within 24 hours of the service call.

  • The call for water main service

Call For Service
Customers Request For Service

At 5:24 P.M. a homeowner called regarding a Bronx water main problem. They heard a loud sound of running water and had visible water leaking into their basement. Within one hour of the call an experienced Field Supervisor was on-site carefully evaluating the situation. The after-hours site visit was free and at no obligation to hire Balkan.

  • The evaluation and findings

By closing the main control valve and making sure no water was running inside the house the water main was tested to see if there was a leak. If no leak was present there would be no sound on the line. In this case there was a loud hissing sound which indicated that water was leaking between the main valve and the roadway. A water main replacement was indeed required. Because Balkan utilizes a ‘Uniform Pricing Policy’ this homeowner received the fairest of quotes, and superior service for their emergency water main in the Bronx.
