When an emergency water main leak occurs panic can set in. Emergency water main leak repair and replacement work is a specialty, so there is the question of who to call. Of course there is the question of what the repair cost will be to resolve a water main leak emergency. So there you have it – the ‘big three’ issues are quality, service, and price.

Usually when choosing a contractor of any sort, there is a trade-off between quality, level of service, or cost of the job. It’s quite unusual in any field to find a contractor that excels in each area of concern. If an emergency water main leak occurs in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx there is one water main contractor that exceeds expectations.
