Plumbing in Lake Forest: We’re Always on Call

Lake Forest no natural lakes.

It has no forests, either.

The city developed on the site of two former ranches, each with a small artificial lake created by damming local streams.

Rancho Canada de los Alisos had a lake called “Lake Forest.” Rancho Canada de los Alisos also had a lake called “Lake Forest.” It was a double whammy of so-called forested lakes.

The two lakes are now mostly dry, the beds filled in with soil from the surrounding hills. The city that formed around them adopted the name “Lake Forest,” although there’s no standing water in sight today.

The city does have plumbing, which takes us to our segue about the best plumbing service in Orange County.

If you’re a Lake Forest resident with a plumbing problem, you might want to call us at Orange Coast.

We respond to emergencies 24/7. We offer complete plumbing services, including hydro jetting drain cleaning, trenchless pipe repair, and remodeling for kitchens and bathrooms.

Common Causes of Plumbing Problems in Lake Forest, CA

These are just a few of the reasons for plumbing issues in your area:

  • Water Hardness: Lake Forest’s water has a relatively high mineral content. Hard water can lead to the buildup of mineral deposits within pipes and fixtures, restrict water flow, cause clogs, and reduce the efficiency of water heaters.
  • Soil Composition: Lake Forest’s clay-like soil expands and contracts with changes in moisture levels, stressing underground pipes.
  • Slab Foundations: Most homes in Lake Forest have slab foundations, where plumbing lines are embedded within the concrete slab. Shifting ground, settling foundations, and corrosion can damage these pipes, resulting in leaks or bursts. Repairs for slab leaks are usually complex and costly.
  • Seismic Activity: like all cities in Orange County, Lake Forest is near the Pacific Ring of Fire. Earthquakes and tremors can dislodge, damage, or sever plumbing pipes.
  • Corrosion: Materials like galvanized steel are especially vulnerable to corruption, which weakens pipes and makes them susceptible to leaks. Hard water can accelerate the corrosion process.
  • Root Intrusions: In older neighborhoods with mature trees, tree roots seeking water and nutrients can infiltrate sewer lines and water lines. This leads to blockages, backups, and pipe damage.
  • Age of Infrastructure: Some parts of Lake Forest have older plumbing systems with aging pipes, joints, and fixtures. These may have to be replaced.
  • Water Pressure Fluctuations: Variations in water pressure can strain plumbing systems. Rapid changes in pressure can weaken pipes, loosen joints, and damage connections.

Homeowners and businesses in Dana Point should be aware of these potential plumbing challenges and proactively address them. Regular maintenance and inspections can ensure the longevity and reliability of plumbing systems.

Our Plumbing Services in Lake Forest

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.
