Water main break in Brooklyn receives next day service from Balkan Sewer And Water Main. When a house is only four years old you would not expect a water service line to break. But that is exactly what a homeowner had to deal with on  a relatively new home. The NYC DEP arrived at their premises and and after investigating issued a Three Day water main repair notice.

Fortunately for the owner this Brooklyn water main could be repaired because it was only four years old an was leaking at a joint near the tap connection in the roadway. A typical K copper water service lasts for over 50 years and in most cases such as this a faulty fitting causes the problem. Performing a water main repair saves a homeowner over a thousand dollars when the line is still relatively new. When a water main break occurs choosing the best course of action is what a professional and reputable water main company does for its clients.

In this particular case the homeowner received next day service from Balkan Sewer and Water Main Service. Giving next day service when a DEP violation exists relieves stress from a homeowner.
