Your 24/7 Plumber in Fullerton, CA

Plumbing in Fullerton: We’re Always on Call

In 1887, Edward Amerige drove a stake into a mustard field, and Fullerton was born.

The mustard field is long gone. The corner Harbor Boulevard and Commonwealth Avenue bears no trace of its agricultural history, notwithstanding an occasional decorative tree.

Fullerton was founded as a center for the Santa Fe Railway; the Fullerton Santa Fe Depot, built in Spanish Colonial Revival style, still stands as a historic landmark.

While the city may not be a national rail hub, its role in regional transportation and ties to railroads are noteworthy aspects of its heritage.

Now for the segue to plumbing.

According to Angi, Fullerton has at least 198 highly-rated local plumbers. That gives you lots of choices when your old water lines burst and flood the living room faster than you can call for help.
The best plumbing company, in our opinion, is only a stone’s throw away in Santa Ana.

That’s Orange Coast Plumbing, and we respond to emergencies 24/7. 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.

Common Causes of Plumbing Problems in Fullerton, CA

Fullerton has specific conditions that can contribute to plumbing problems. Here are just a few of the

  • Slab Foundations: Many homes in Fullerton have plumbing embedded in the concrete slab foundation. This makes repairs and maintenance more challenging because accessing the plumbing lines often requires cutting through the slab.
  • Soil Conditions: Fullerton has varying soil types, including clay-rich soils. Clay soils can expand and contract with changes in moisture levels, potentially causing shifts in the ground that can affect plumbing lines.
  • Water Hardness: Fullerton’s water contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium. These minerals can build up inside pipes, restricting water flow, reducing water pressure, and increasing the risk of clogs.
  • Seismic Activity: Southern California is prone to earthquakes due to its location along tectonic plate boundaries. Flexible connectors and seismic shut-off valves can mitigate potential earthquake damage.
  • Age of Infrastructure: Older homes in Fullerton might have aging plumbing systems vulnerable to corrosion, leaks, and pipe deterioration.
  • Tree Root Intrusion: Tree and shrub roots often infiltrate underground plumbing lines, leading to blockages and leaks.
  • High Water Pressure: Elevated water pressure can strain plumbing pipes and fittings. Installing pressure regulators can keep water pressure within safe limits.
  • Sediment Buildup: Sediment and debris can accumulate in plumbing lines, reducing water flow. Occasional flushing of pipes can prevent this from happening.
  • Improper Installation: Inadequate plumbing installation, whether due to poor workmanship or subpar materials, nearly always leads to problems down the line.

Homeowners in Fullerton should consider regular plumbing inspections, addressing any issues promptly.

Broken sewer pipe

Our Plumbing Services in Fullerton

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.

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.
