Your 24/7 Plumber in Newport Beach, CA

Plumbing in Newport Beach: We’re Always on Call

Newport Beach, CA, is an affluent city known for its oceanfront homes, world-class restaurants, private yachts, surfing, and plumbing.

Yes, plumbing.

While tourists plumb the souvenir shops, we plumb the sewer lines. While diners dive into seafood dinners, we dive into the diagnostics. And while surfers ride the pipeline, we install new piping to keep things running ashore. As plumbers, we have a different perspective.

Many of the homes and commercial buildings of Newport Beach date back to the 70s and earlier. Much earlier. They’ve had several new coats of paint, a new roof or two, and maybe even a complete makeover.

But old plumbing lies beneath the surface like a ticking time bomb — a water bomb, in this case, but anyone who has witnessed a burst slab leak will attest to its destructive power. It can ruin your home or business.

So it pays to keep the phone number of a reliable local plumber in your contacts. Orange Coast Plumbing has served residents and businesses of Newport Beach for nearly 50 years. We have dispatch locations all over Orange County. And we’re available 24-7 for any plumbing emergency.

Newport Beach’s Soil Can Be Hard on Plumbing

1. Soil Composition

  • Sandy soil near the beach lets water move freely around pipes, potentially making them shift, crack, and break.
  • Clay soil inland expands and contracts with changes in moisture levels, which can lead to the shifting and movement of pipes.
  • Silt soil may allow pipes to shift or settle if not properly supported during installation.
  • Chalk, limestone, and volcanic soil often contain corrosive minerals. Corrosion-resistant pipes and proper insulation can mitigate the problem.

2. High Water Tables

  • Coastal areas in Southern California often have high water tables due to their proximity to the ocean and the presence of groundwater.
  • A high water table means that the water level can rise and fall quickly, making it difficult to keep plumbing systems working properly.
  • In Newport Beach, the water table can be influenced by factors like tides, tidal surges, and fluctuations in sea levels.
  • A high water table can impact the installation and maintenance of underground pipes, as well as the potential for groundwater infiltration into basements and crawl spaces.

3. Earthquakes & Seismic Activity

  • The Newport-Inglewood fault zone extends through the southwestern portion of Newport Beach.
  • The Whittier fault is close enough to cause extensive damage.
  • Earthquakes and seismic events can cause shifting, displacement of plumbing lines, or even rupture them.

4. Liquefaction Potential

  • Liquefaction is a phenomenon occurring in certain soil types during seismic events. It primarily affects loose, sandy, or silty soils.
  • During an earthquake, loose soils lose their strength and behave like a liquid, potentially causing the ground to sink or shift.
  • Liquefaction can damage underground pipes and plumbing infrastructure.

Proper plumbing installation, regular maintenance, and periodic inspections will mitigate these risks.

Our Plumbing Services in Newport Beach

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.

Our Commitment to Newport Beach, CA

Ever since the Pacific Electric Railway connected Newport Beach to Los Angeles in 1905, people have flocked to Newport Beach for its beaches and surf. It’s a popular destination for sailing, fishing, kayaking, surfing, and general tourism.

Newport Harbor is one of the largest recreational harbors on the West Coast, offering sanctuary to approximately 9,000 boats. Points of interest in the city include Newport Pier, Balboa Pier and Island Ferry, the Boardwalk, Dory Fish Market, Corona del Mar State Park, Crystal Cove State Park, and the “The Wedge” with its world-class surfing. Notable events include the Newport Beach Boat Show and the Beer Can Races,

With so many homes, businesses, and tourist attractions close to the shore, Newport Beach must take extra care to protect its natural resources. Some protection efforts, like the Upper Newport Bay Ecological Reserve, are already in effect, but the citizens of Newport Beach must also do their part to keep their plumbing, heating, and cooling systems functioning at their most efficient levels.

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 that they are properly 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 of normal business hours, we’re available 24/7 for emergency plumbing services.
