Contractor recommendation for water service line replacement

Hello PoPville,

Can anyone recommend a contractor to replace the private portion of our water service line? We have a leak somewhere in the service line and DC Water has already come out to confirm it isn’t on the public side (they also went ahead and replaced the public portion of the lead line).

Now we need someone to come out to identify the location of the leak or better still just replace the rest of the line. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

We had one company come out but haven’t received the quote yet, they also claimed the permit was “optional” and up to me to decide if we wanted one. This sounds suspicious to me, never heard of permits being optional before but they said the job would be an extra $1000 if we permitted it as they would have to dig on the outside of the foundation wall instead of just pushing the pipe through from the inside.
