No other company in the Virginia, Maryland, or Washington, D.C. region has a team of licensed plumbers ready to handle a water or sewer line replacement like John C. Flood.
Pipes naturally receive wear and tear over the years — especially the pipes that carry water to and from your home. Proper plumbing maintenance can prolong the lifespan of your water and sewer lines, but if your home has Orangeburg or galvanized pipes, your system is a ticking time bomb. You’ll inevitably need to consider water line replacement and sewer line replacement eventually, the only question is when.
Homeowners have the option to proactively replace their water and sewer lines, or reactively contact sewer pipe repair experts once their pipes burst. Either way, it’s important to choose a trusted plumbing company that will get the job done quickly with minimal disturbances to your home and yard.
The purpose of water lines is to distribute clean water to residential homes and commercial buildings from the water main. Water flows upwards in these pipes by mechanical force, which is then used in the home.
Typically, water line bursts are uncommon because there’s a low chance of any clogging occurring. However, the high pressure needed to push water into the home can often lead to leakage.
Sewer lines are there to remove used and dirty water from homes or commercial buildings and transport it to a sewage treatment plant. It operates through the use of gravitational force to carry water down and out. Although rain and weather conditions play a part in the cleanliness of these pipes, it is extremely susceptible to blockage and clogging.

John C. Flood is the only company in the Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. region that offers homeowners three different water line replacement and sewer line replacement options. Our team consults with our customers and reviews the differences between three revolutionary methods for repairing or replacing sewer lines before starting any job.
Pipe bursting is the ideal technique to use for the rehabilitation and replacement of utility lines such as gas, water, sewer, telephone, and power. This method efficiently bursts clay, concrete, cast iron, and PVC pipe and is the perfect solution for up-sizing a sewer or storm line.
Using the constant tension wrench, the old pipeline is shattered using a high-powered tool with special bursting heads that smash through the old pipe while pulling through the new replacement pipe. When inserted, the bursting head breaks the pipe into pieces, enlarges the hole, and pushes the fragments into the surrounding soil. This limits pipe bursting to pipes that can be fractured and to soil conditions that will absorb the old fragments.
