NYC Plumber


Paul R. Balkan and David Balkan, owners of a NYC sewer and water main service company, have formalized their longstanding relationship with the Master Plumbers Council by joining as members. For decades Balkan Sewer and Water Main Service has depended on the Master Plumbers Council for up-to-date information on industry matters and Balkan has at times been sought out for information regarding sewer and water main issues. This licensed plumbers association has been in existence since 1889.

This announcement is made with pride as the Master Plumbers Council is a highly respected and professional licensed plumbers association. They are recognized throughout the plumbing industry and City Agencies alike for representing the best interests of the public and the entire licensed plumbing trade for over 100 years. In these times of complicated permit procedures, restrictive inspection procedures, and fast paced rule changes, being aligned with a reputable trade association is a vital tool for a licensed plumbing firm or sewer contractor in NYC.
