Sewer and Water Main Lines

With incomparable prices and excellent customer service, Underground Services First should always be your first choice for your sewer and water main line issues.

Review by in Midlothian, VA
I hired Underground Services First for a sewer line replacement, through Home Advisor. When I initially submitted a request for a quote for the work, this company was the first to respond. They have been extremely professional, highly responsive, and very knowledgeable. I primarily dealt with the General Manager - Donna Holt. In their first call to me, they took time to understand the issue and demonstrated their expertise, by asking the right kind of questions that I expected, and even went above & beyond to give some helpful/logical advise on careful use of the water resources till the issue was resolved. Also realizing the seriousness of the issue, they sent someone to make an immediate assessment, and continued to work with me to have the replacement/repair scheduled at the earliest possible date, as soon as the weather would allow. The sewer line repair was done sometime around mid-December 2017, and I initially called them around beginning of December. This is the first time, as a fairly new house owner, that I'm having to get a major repair/replacement work, and without Underground Services Firsts' exceptional level of service and work, this would not have been a quick/less stressful experience. When they actually came to do the work, and they realized that it would be a 'repair' rather than a 'replacement', they were even decent enough to reduce their initially quoted price by the appropriate amount. This company demonstrates that they care about their business, their quality of service, and their customers; with their high degree of responsiveness/timeliness/professionalism/excellent work. The only reason I reduced half a star from their overall rating is for two reasons, it would have been nice to get a slightly more reasonable price for the entire work, and they committed to putting back the stone pathway bricks where they had dug for the work, but they have yet to come back and do it. The repair work was done quickly, and I have not had any issues so far. Overall, my experience has been great with this company, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who asks me, for any similar outdoor plumbing needs. THANK YOU, Donna and Underground Services First, for making this difficult situation, so much more better.

Company responded to my needs in a timely manor and worked until finished. Job was not easy for them but would not give up. Quote was competitive and would recommend them for future jobs.

Response and the work were professional and quick. I was given a total bill before the work was done. I would call again without hesitation. The concerned reaction to our emergency was greatly appreciated.

Awesome quality and customer service. Jo Ann really worked hard to coordinate things. She's very accessible and kept prices affordable for me and my family. The Plummer had my burst pipe up and running in less than an hour. Ultimately I was very pleased.

Donna and her team were great. They were honest and even when they ran into a problem with their equipment, they quickly found a solution to fix my issue. Their price was very reasonable.

Donna was great. She came out after normal business hours. She had her crew come out on Saturday and had the work performed. We were able to have water for Christmas. She was wonderful.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
