Emergency Water Main Replacement – When a homeowner is getting flooded out in the Bronx and needs their water main replaced, immediate service is mandatory. When Mrs. Jones had her main control valve for the water main blow apart water was shooting out all over the inside of her house. It was a potential catastrophe and she needed immediate same-day service for her water main problem.

Mrs. Jones called Joseph L. Balkan Inc for her water main problem and immediately was reassured that someone would arrive within one hour and give her relief from her emergency plumbing situation. One hour later a Balkan representative arrived and closed off the leak from the main control valve.

Another Balkan representative arrived and electronically traced out the water service to be sure where the connection to the City main was located. These services were provided free of charge and with no obligation. Upon receiving a fair and honest quote to replace the water main Mrs. Jones hired Balkan. Balkan uses a uniform pricing policy to ensure all Clients receive the fairest of prices.

A little over 24 hours later Balkan had an experienced water main crew on the site, the water main replacement was almost complete, and all permits were secured. The very next day the roadway was repaved, and all the disturbed cement had been professionally restored as well.
