Sources of Plumbing Problems in San Clemente, CA

  • Sandy Soil: San Clemente’s soil composition can accelerate ground shifting and settling, potentially damaging underground pipes.
  • Seismic Activity: Like all of Southern California, San Clemente is prone to earthquakes. Even minor ground movements can loosen, crack, or rupture pipes.
  • Aging Pipes: Parts of San Clemente have old water supply lines and sewer systems, which have been corrupted and degraded.
  • High Water Table: San Clemente’s coastal location can result in a high water table, especially in areas near the beach. Groundwater intrusion can overload sewage systems and cause backups or leaks.
  • Saltwater Intrusion: Beachfront homes might experience saltwater intrusion into freshwater pipes. Saltwater is highly corrosive and can weaken lines.
  • Hard Water: San Clemente’s water has a high mineral content. This hard water often leads to mineral buildup within pipes, reducing water flow and creating blockages.
  • Tree Roots: Mature trees with expansive root systems can infiltrate and damage underground pipes, resulting in blockages, cracks, or breaks in the plumbing system.
  • Slab Foundations: Slab foundations are common in San Clemente. When pipes under the slab settle or break, leaks can be difficult to detect and utterly devastating. Repairs can be costly, extensive, and time-consuming.
  • Construction and Development: Ongoing construction, development, or roadwork in the area can inadvertently damage pipes, either through direct impact or by changing the pressure and flow dynamics of the underground plumbing network.
  • Landscape Changes: Changes in landscaping practices, such as improper grading or planting, can affect water flow and contribute to drainage issues.
  • Poor Installation: Plumbing systems are complex, and a mistake during installation can have costly consequences in the future. Errors such as incorrect fittings or connections can cause problems down the road.

Call us at 714-953-1111 if you experience these issues in your San Clemente home or business.

Our Plumbing Services in San Clemente

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.
