Plumbing in Laguna Niguel: We’re Always on Call

Laguna Niguel offers small-city living with some of the perks of a larger city. More than one-third of the municipality is open space for outdoor recreation.

Several factors contribute to its favorable reputation:

  • Scenic Beauty: Laguna Niguel’s stunning landscapes, rolling hills, and ocean views create a visually appealing environment. The city’s commitment to preserving green spaces and natural areas enhances the overall aesthetic.
  • Low Crime Rates: The community’s emphasis on public safety and well-maintained neighborhoods enhances the overall quality of life.
  • Education: The city boasts excellent schools, both public and private. Access to quality education is critical for families considering living in Laguna Niguel.

These factors are due, in part, to the fact that Laguna Niguel is a master-planned city. It’s also a new city, incorporated in 1989.

Where Does Laguna Niguel Get Its Water?

Laguna Niguel is part of Southern California’s larger water management system that relies on various sources to meet its water needs. These include:


  • Local Groundwater: The city taps into local groundwater sources through wells.
  • Imported Water: No, we’re not talking about Perrier. Imported water comes from other sources, such as the Colorado River or Northern California.
  • Reservoirs and Storage: Reservoirs and storage facilities help regulate the supply and distribution of water to meet the city’s demands.
  • Conservation and Efficiency: The city emphasizes water conservation and efficiency to maximize available water resources. These efforts include promoting water-saving practices among residents, implementing water-efficient landscaping, and upgrading infrastructure to reduce water loss.
  • Recycled water: Laguna Niguel participates in a regional recycled water program that ensures a safe environment for nearby rivers and streams.
  • Desalinated Sea Water: The California Coastal Commission recently approved the construction of a desalination plant in nearby Dana Point.

Common Causes of Plumbing Problems in Laguna Niguel, CA

Much of Laguna Niguel’s plumbing infrastructure is new. But even new plumbing can fail under certain conditions.

  • Slab Foundations: Most Southern California homes have concrete slab foundations. Plumbing pipes run beneath the slab, where they can develop leaks over time due to wear and tear, shifting soil, or corrosion. Repairing these leaks can be complex and may necessitate breaking through the concrete.
  • Soil Conditions: The soil in Laguna Niguel consists of various types, including clay and expansive soils. These soils expand and contract with changes in moisture levels, potentially shifting in the ground and stressing pipes.
  • Seismic Activity: Laguna Niguel is no stranger to earthquakes, which can damage plumbing infrastructure. Flexible pipes can mitigate the impact of seismic activity on plumbing systems.
  • Hard Water: Laguna Niguel’s water contains elevated levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium. These minerals can build up in pipes, reducing water flow, clogs, and corrosion.
  • Salt Air and Corrosion: The city’s proximity to the ocean exposes plumbing systems to salt air and moisture, accelerating the corrosion of pipes and plumbing fixtures.
  • Water Pressure Variations: Fluctuations in water pressure, whether due to municipal changes or other factors, can stress plumbing pipes and fittings. Rapid changes in pressure can lead to leaks or even bursts in the system.
  • Tree Root Intrusion: Trees and shrubs planted near plumbing lines can send roots searching for water sources, including pipes. As these roots infiltrate pipes, they can cause blockages and damage.
  • Age of Infrastructure: Some parts of Laguna Niguel have older plumbing systems that may be more susceptible to wear and tear. Aging pipes are more prone to corrosion, leaks, and other issues.

Given these local conditions, homeowners in Laguna Niguel should be proactive about plumbing maintenance and inspections.

Regular checks for leaks, corrosion, and signs of damage can help identify problems before they escalate, potentially saving time and money in repairs.

Our Plumbing Services in Laguna Niguel

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.
