Your 24/7 Plumber in Fountain Valley, CA

Plumbing in Fountain Valley: We’re Always on Call

Fountain Valley, CA has remarkably few fountains.

Cultural diversity? Yes. Fountains? No.

It does have a high water table and was once an abundant source of artesian wells, hence its name.

However, the water table and historic artesian wells can’t explain the flood in your living room. If that’s why you’re here, you have a slab leak, my friend, and you should call us immediately.

Many Fountain Valley homes and much of the city’s infrastructure date back to the 60s, 70s, and 80s. All that original plumbing is approaching the end of its life cycle — if it hasn’t already been triaged repeatedly or outright replaced.

At Orange Coast Plumbing, we respond to emergencies 24/7. Our main dispatch location is in nearby Santa Ana. We offer complete plumbing services, including hydro jet drain cleaning, trenchless pipe repair, and remodeling for kitchens and bathrooms. We guarantee our work and charge reasonable rates.

And yes, we can fix your slab leak.

Call us at 714-953-1111.

Common Causes of Plumbing Problems in Fountain Valley, CA

Local conditions in Fountain Valley may contribute to plumbing problems.

  • Soil Conditions: Expansive clay soils are common in the region. They expand and contract with changes in moisture levels, stressing underground pipes.
  • Seismic Activity: Ground shaking and movement from earthquakes can damage plumbing infrastructure.
  • Ground Movement: Beyond seismic activity, other ground movement, such as settling or erosion, can affect plumbing.
  • Slab Foundations: Most Fountain Valley homes have slab foundations, with plumbing pipes embedded within the concrete slab. When the lines give out — and older materials like galvanized iron inevitably will — leak detection is often tricky, and repairs can be expensive.
  • Ongoing Construction: Vibrations from construction equipment and excavation can disturb the ground and affect plumbing systems.
  • Water Hardness: Calcium and magnesium in hard water can form deposits inside pipes and fixtures, reducing water flow and potentially causing clogs.
  • Corrosion and Aging Infrastructure: Older homes with corroded or degraded pipes may experience leaks, reduced water pressure, and water quality issues.
  • Tree Roots: Trees and plants in the area have invasive root systems that can infiltrate and damage underground pipes.
  • Water Pressure Variations: Fluctuations in water pressure, caused by changes in demand or maintenance of the water supply system, can stress pipes and fittings.

Hiring licensed plumbing professionals and scheduling regular check-ups can reduce costly repairs, minimize disruption, and keep your home’s plumbing infrastructure operating efficiently.

Our Plumbing Services in Fountain Valley

Leak Detection & Repair

Water damage is a leading cause of property loss. Call us immediately if you suspect a leak, even if you can’t locate the source.

Slab Leak Detection & Repair

Slab leaks are especially hard to detect and dangerous. We use diagnostics to pinpoint the leak and repair it with less invasive methods, like trenchless repair.

Sewer Line Repair & Drain Cleaning

A blocked sewer line is a threat to your health and property. At Orange Coast Plumbing, we use the latest technologies to repair broken sewer lines, including trenchless and cured-in-place pipe repair (CIPP).

Hydro Jet Drain Cleaning

A hydro jet uses high-pressure water streams to clear sewer blockages without damaging pipes. It can remove almost anything, including tree roots.

Water Heater Repair & Installation

Most water heaters last between 6 and 13 years. Tankless heaters are more durable — up to 20 years of service. Has your trusty water heater been around for a while? 

Piping & Repiping

When you find yourself paying for the same repairs over and over, it may be time for repiping — nothing less than a rebuild of your plumbing system.

Bathroom Fixture Installation & Repair

Professionals should handle most bathroom fixture installation and repair. You may not need us to replace a showerhead, but leaky pipes are another matter.

Plumbing Remodeling

We can remodel your kitchen or bathroom from concept to completion. Or we can work with your architect or interior designer to create the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams.

Hot Water Heater Installation & Repair

Most water heaters last between 6 and 13 years. Tankless heaters are more durable — up to 20 years of service. Whether you realize it or not, your water heater needs help. We’re here to help it.

Commercial Plumbing

Commercial buildings have much greater water and sewage disposal demands. Plumbers must meet higher standards for water pressure and flow and deal with more complex piping systems.

24/7 Emergency Plumbing Services

Flooding can damage flooring, furniture, walls, and even your foundation. Mold growth is a health concern. Call us at the first sign of an indoor leak or sewage backup. We’ll send someone within the hour, any time of day.
