Your 24/7 Plumber in Irvine, CA
Plumbing in Irvine: We’re Always on Call
Irvine is a planned community with sprawling green spaces, top-notch recreation, excellent schools and universities, and tech companies.
It’s all thanks to Irvine Company, which sold 1,000 acres of land to the University of California for one dollar in 1959. It was one of their less lucrative business deals.
The community that developed around UC Irvine (planned, of course) was incorporated in 1971 and bore the Irvine family name.
Most homes and offices in Irvine are relatively new; since 1990, Irvine’s population has tripled. This exponential growth would normally strain the infrastructure, except Irvine’s infrastructure was planned, like everything else, and Irvine anticipated the growth.
Irvine’s water exceeds federal standards; however, it’s hard. “Hard” as in mineral-laden. 52% of Irvine’s water comes from Orange County Groundwater Basin and the Irvine and Lake Forest sub-basins.
Hard water can be hard on plumbing and prematurely age it. And even newer homes and businesses can experience plumbing problems.
So with housing costs soaring 217% higher than the national average, you’ll want to protect your investment against leaks, mildew, flooding damage, and other plumbing disasters that strike without warning.
It pays to keep Orange Coast Plumbing in your contacts. We’re only a stone’s throw away.

Irvine’s Soil Can Be Hard on Plumbing
- Clay Soil Swelling: Irvine’s clay-heavy soil expands when it absorbs water and shrinks when it dries out. This movement exerts pressure on underground pipes, leading to shifting, cracks, and potential damage.
- Ground Settling: The soil’s natural settling over time can make pipes shift or sag, contributing to misalignments, leaks, or blockages in plumbing systems.
- Corrosion Acceleration: Certain types of soil in Irvine, combined with water chemistry, can accelerate the corrosion of metal pipes, causing weakened pipes, leaks, and reduced plumbing lifespan.
- Root Intrusion: Trees and shrubs thrive in Irvine’s climate, and their roots often seek out moisture from pipes. These roots can infiltrate plumbing systems and block, crack, or break pipes.
- Soil Erosion: Intense rainfall or poor drainage can erode the soil around pipes, potentially causing misalignment, exposure, or vulnerability to physical damage.
- Water Saturation: Heavy rains can saturate the soil, increasing pressure around underground pipes. Unless pipes are properly supported, they may crack or collapse.
- Shifting Foundations: Soil movement due to geological factors or construction in the area can affect building foundations and subsequently damage plumbing systems.
Proper plumbing installation, regular maintenance, and periodic inspections will mitigate these risks.
Our Plumbing Services in Irvine
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 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.
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).
A hydro jet uses high-pressure water streams to clear sewer blockages without damaging pipes. It can remove almost anything, including tree roots.
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.
Professionals should handle most bathroom fixture installation and repair. You may not need us to replace a showerhead, but leaky pipes are another matter.
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.
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 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.
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.
We Also Do HVAC
We can fix your pipes, and we can fix your air conditioning! Sorry, we don’t fix kitchen appliances, but we have to draw the line somewhere.
Our HVAC technicians are among the best in Irvine, with many years of experience. OCP technicians are licensed, certified, and bonded, meaning they have undergone rigorous training to meet the industry’s highest professional standards.
HVAC services include:

Our Promise to You
At Orange Coast Plumbing, our number one goal is to build lasting relationships with customers. Some customers have relied on our services for decades.
All plumbing has a limited lifespan; however, we use only durable copper for interior piping and PVC for sewage. Our technicians inspect the installation of all new pipes, fixtures, valves, and other equipment to ensure they’re correctly placed and free from damage or defects.
We stand behind our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. We warranty all parts and labor. And if you need us outside regular business hours, we’re available 24/7 for emergency plumbing services.
We promise you’ll always get the attention, service, and quality you deserve.

Our Commitment to Irvine, CA
Irvine is a special place.
Irvine’s modern, planned community has changed dramatically from the days of early Spanish settlers.
Land sanctioned by the King of Spain first brought missions and settlers to the area in the 1700s. James Irvine and two partners assembled the Irvine Ranch from Mexican and Spanish land grants in 1864, fourteen years after the end of the Mexican-American War.
An heir of James Irvine saw the potential of developing some of the family’s ranch land to serve the interests of a future community. He stepped forward to alter the land distribution. An estimated 40,000 acres remain a historical landmark, while carefully planned developments have put Irvine on the map.
