Balkan Saves A School From $30,000.00 Emergency Sewer Repair In Queens

Sewer Service
June 3, 2010

by David Balkan

When the Allen Christian School had to close their school down due to an emergency sewer condition they contacted various parties to determine the cause of their sewer problem. The Allen Christian School was assured that they had to do a major sewer repair and that ‘There was doubt about it’. This would be no small sewer job, the house sewer run was about 120′ of pipe that crossed Merrick Boulevard. Surely this sewer replacement would cost around $30,000.00. In addition, the school may have to be closed for quite some time before sewer repairs were completed.

When Balkan Sewer and Water Main Service was contacted by the Allen Christian School a well trained and experienced Balkan Representative was dispatched to the site and arrived not long after the call was received. As Balkan has a policy of free on-site evaluations and free estimates, there was no charge for this service. After carefully surveying the situation Balkan determined that the City sewer was backed up and that absolutely no work was required! The NYC DEP was called to the site and cleared out the City sewer. That is how a $30,000.00 emergency sewer installation can turn into a free of charge site visit from a knowledgeable professional. Balkan provides sewer and water main service and solutions throughout Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the Bronx – but not empty promises or unnecessary work.
