Undertaking a project to remodel kitchen areas is no small task. It can mean a few weeks of upheaval in the home as the project is completed.

Let Ritz Plumbing act as an expert adviser and a secret weapon in any kitchen remodeling project.

Need a new kitchen sink to complete that remodel? We can help plan and install a sink in a brand new island. We can also help you prepare for the installation of a high quality refrigerator that features filtered water and an ice maker. For the kitchen sink a garbage disposer is practically indispensable. Our plumbing experts at Ritz can help homeowners decide which model is right for their kitchen and have it installed in no time.

Some people have been dreaming of owning a gourmet kitchen for years. They hope to add a wet bar and other amenities that will make their home more useful and stylish as well as being welcoming to guests. A remodeled kitchen is one of the best ways to accomplish this goal. The kitchen can be enlarged and modernized with the help of the experts at Ritz Plumbing.

Bathroom remodeling is another major project that homeowners often begin with a great deal of zest. That’s great, because the experts at Ritz Plumbing make it easy to remodel bathroom spaces in any home. Older bathrooms can be difficult to love. They may be limited on space and have older appliances that simply don’t function the way they once did. Faucets may be leaky and an outdated shower head may mean that gallons of water are being wasted every day.

The ideal bathroom is a luxurious retreat that is nonetheless fully functional. It should be convenient, feature modern amenities and be kind to the environment. An updated bathroom is also kind to the homeowner’s wallet. Environmentally conscious choices that reduce wasted water typically mean a smaller utility bill as well. That’s something that everyone can appreciate!

Taking on plumbing improvements as a do-it-yourself project is a fairly risky task. Complicated plumbing components work in concert to make the bathroom as functional as possible. Many homeowners have discovered for themselves just how difficult do-it-yourself plumbing can be when they accidentally cause a flood in their home. Such an event can cause extensive damage and be very expensive to repair. Head off such problems by contacting Ritz Plumbing before demolition even begins – we will help you design and implement a foolproof, common sense plan to get the job done right the first time.

Homeowners who are experiencing weak water pressure in their kitchen or bathroom may be having this problem for a number of reasons. One of the most common is corroded piping. Homes that feature galvanized or steel pipes may acquire mineral buildup and corrosion after a couple of decades of use. The one sure way to solve the problem is to have those pipes completely replaced. This is a big project and typically quite complicated, so it’s best to enlist the help of our experts to take on this job. With our assistance the job becomes a snap and the homeowner is well on their way to a more luxurious and efficient lifestyle.

An outdated toilet wastes thousands of gallons of water every year. If an older toilet runs constantly, makes excessive noise or seems to become clogged consistently, then it may be time to replace the toilet and even some of the piping that leads to it. Newer toilets have the benefit of modern design features that make them more efficient and trustworthy. The bathroom should be a room that provides comfort to its occupants. Updating the plumbing can go a long way toward achieving that goal.

Many homeowners with older plumbing systems also deal with excessive pipe noise. This metallic cacophony is hard on the ears and it also doesn’t do any favors for the pipes. A professional from Ritz Plumbing can provide expert advice about whether to install a hammer arrestor or slowly closing valves to fix the problem. While we are evaluating the quality and health of the plumbing components in the kitchen and bathrooms it may not hurt to have us look over the rest of the plumbing system as well.

Kitchen remodeling is a great way to increase the value and functionality of any home. Remodeling a bathroom is similarly useful and can make the home a more livable space. Call our experts at Ritz Plumbing to get advice on planning a remodel project. Whether it is simply adding a garbage disposer or completely overhauling a master bathroom, our plumbing professionals are ready to lend a helpful hand and recommend the best fixtures and appliances that give the best value for the money. That new kitchen or bathroom will be a reality in no time.

Faucets & Sinks

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

A distressed homeowner contacted us complaining of a leaking sink. He said that the problem had been ongoing, and he had tried to tighten washers in an attempt to fix it.

Issue:

While the homeowner considered himself a handyman around the house, the technician was dispatched to assess the situation. After checking to ensure the washer seat was clear of debris and that the fixture was tightly mounted to the sink, the technician discussed a full faucet replacement.

Resolution:

The homeowner did not want to lose any more money on excess water bills so he agreed to a replacement. The technician turned off the water supply to the home, unbolted the current faucet from the sink and set it to the side. He removed any remaining caulk before setting the new faucet on top of the base. Before applying new caulk, he made sure that the spray hose would line up in the new faucet. It was a tight fit, and the technician had to tweak the fixture so that the hose would be in sync. He then tightened the nuts to ensure that the new faucet was securely mounted on the sink. After reconnecting the water lines and turning the water on in the home, he tested the unit to make sure the installation was successful.

Sewer Repair

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

A homeowner contacted us with reports of a clogged sewer. Before we sent a technician to her home, she was able to tell us that she had recently purchased her home and that it was a few decades old.

Issue:

Armed with this information, the technician asked the homeowner if she knew if she had clay tile pipes in her sewer system. She was not certain, but the technician explained that the roots of the trees in her yard may often be drawn to the warmth and moisture in the sewer lines; clay pipes provide a great way for roots to access the water.

Resolution:

After using a camera to view the pipes, the technician verified that the system was, indeed, made of clay and that the roots had been growing into the loose joints and tiny cracks that had developed over time. Fortunately, the damage had only been done in one area of the pipe, under a particularly large tree, so the technician was confident that he could cut through the roots to remove the clog. However, he suggested that the homeowner consider replacing her pipes with newer PVC or concrete pipes to prevent the situation from reoccurring in the future. The homeowner said she would consider it and contact us to schedule a future appointment.

Drain Cleaning Repair

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

A client called us to ask us if there was any way to unclog the drain in her garage. The strainer was not completely secured on the drain hole when she had been sweeping the garage early, and she reported that she had accidently swept leaves and grass clippings into the pipe.

Issue:

The technician was dispatched to her location to assist her and to determine if the drain needed to be cleaned or if the clog was due to a blockage that was beyond repair.

Resolution:

Our technician first removed the strainer from the drain and fed a cable into the drain pipe. He was then able to plug in the power augur near the drain. The technician set it to function in a clockwise motion and turned on the unit before pushing into the drain. Once he located the source of resistance, he repeatedly pulled the cable out and placed it back into the drain until he was able to successfully break up the clog. He ensured the drain was clean by pouring three buckets of hot water into the pipe.

Installation of Gas Line

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

A business owner called to report that his company was not able to have hot water at his location. He was unsure of the cause, as the hot water had been working the previous day.

Issue:

The technician met the owner to discuss the possible causes of the hot water malfunctioning. After ruling out leaking pipes, the technician determined that the gas line was either clogged or needed to be repaired.

Resolution:

Our technician used an inline camera to detect the source of the issue and found that both the pilot light needed to be relit and that the gas line required replacement. He explained to the customer that over time, the gas lines can become corroded and worn, thus negatively affecting the ability to provide hot water. While the customer was surprised that the technician needed to install a new gas line, he was relieved that we were able to solve the problem before a serious gas leak occurred.

Low Water Pressure

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 4/5

Customer Symptoms:

A landlord received complaints from multiple tenants in his building that the water pressure was very poor.

Issue:

Although he attributed the first report as merely a problem with a single faucet in the apartment and had previously called a repairman to inspect the unit, after he received calls from every client, he realized that the whole building needed to be checked.

Resolution:

The technician needed to narrow down the cause of the low water pressure. He first checked the water meter to ensure that it was turned on the whole way and that the repairman had not turned it back. He found that the meter itself was not completely on and mentioned this to the client. The client remembered that he had called a repairman to look at one apartment after he received the first call and realized that the repairman may have forgotten to turn it back on the rest of the way. The client thanked the technician for being thorough and narrowing down the cause of the low water pressure so quickly.

Repiping a House

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

Our company received a call from a customer who was suffering from defective galvanized pipes throughout his home. He requested that we send a technician to repipe his entire house to ensure that his property and family would be safe from leaking pipes or other subsequent water damage.

Issue:

In order to completely repipe the home, we needed to bypass the existing distribution system starting at the middle point between the interior and exterior pipes and finishing at different fixtures such as faucets and sinks throughout the house.

Resolution:

As our technician began to work, he noticed that the old pipes had developed many pinhole leaks that were resulting in mold growth in the walls. The technician reassured the homeowner that he did the right thing by calling a plumber because if he had let the problem go much longer, he would have been faced with expensive damages. In addition to replacing the pipes, the technician also repaired the places in the drywall where he had previously accessed the system.

Dishwasher Repair

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

A frustrated homeowner contacted us with a claim that her dishwasher simply wasn’t getting her dishes clean. With four young children and an always-hungry husband, she was becoming increasingly frustrated with doing dishes three times to get them clean.

Issue:

The customer had acknowledged that she had tried different soaps and tablets in an effort to clean her dishes, but nothing was working. The technician assessed the unit and determined that the dishwasher may not be receiving the proper amount of water.

Resolution:

To confirm his suspicion, the technician checked the electrical valve in the unit. This water inlet valve should open up to allow hot water into the unit when it is working properly. However, the technician found that the valve had failed, thus resulting in the lack of water to clean the cookware. The valve was old and beyond repair, so our technician was able to remove it and replace it with a new model. The homeowner already had dishes waiting to go, so the technician remained in her home to verify that the cycle would be completed properly.

24 Hour Plumbing

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

We received a call from a client who was experiencing flood-like waters in her basement. She did not know where the water was coming from and was concerned for the protection of her valuables and furniture.

Issue:

We know how important emergency issues can be so our 24 hour plumber responded within the hour. We surveyed the situation and determined that the excess water was the result of a clogged sewer drain. We asked the customer if she had been experiencing delaying flushes or prolonged refilling times when she used her toilet, and she reported that she had experienced difficulty earlier that day.

Resolution:

We used state-of-the-art equipment and technology to locate the source of the problem. Our technician found that the best method to find the clog was to thread a camera into the drainage system rather than begin digging in areas simply to guess where the issue began. After locating the clog, the technician was able to quickly and efficiently restore the sewer system with minimal damage to the customer’s property. She was happy to know that we took the effort to accurately find the troubled area before we started to rectify the problem.

Sump Pump Installation

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 4/5

Customer Symptoms:

We received a call from a client requesting that our technicians install a sump pump in her home. She had been experiencing a leaking basement and had a feeling that the old sump pump was to blame.

Issue:

We verified that the sump pump did, in fact, need to be replaced. The client was more than willing to allow us to complete the task because she did not want to have any more water leaking into her basement as she was making plans to furnish it.

Resolution:

Our technician determined where the utility, sewer and water lines were and designated a spot away from this area at the lowest point of the basement. The technician dug a whole to the manufacturer’s recommended depth and put the liner into the hole. He then filled the hole with gravel and attached the discharge pipe to the sump pump. He finished the job by caulking to guard against leaking and adjusting the float valve on the sump pump.

Sprinkler Repair

Review of Ritz Plumbing
img3 img3 img3 img3 img3 Overall Experience 5/5

Customer Symptoms:

A business owner had contacted us with concerns that his current sprinkler system was not functioning properly. The sprinkler heads would spray water wildly at some times or they would not work at all.

Issue:

He claimed that the sprinkler heads were not directing water correctly and that they appeared to be clogged. We examined the heads and looked for broken and cracked plastic casing to verify that we needed to replace them. We explained to the customer that over time, the heads can become worn due to constant use, weather elements and careless lawn mowers.

Resolution:

Our technician was able to turn off the water system and dig a three-foot diameter ditch around the sprinkler heads. He removed the sprinkler head from the riser using a wrench. The technician attached a new sprinkler head by screwing it back onto the riser. Before he filled the hole, he turned the water supply on to test the system and set the sprinkler pattern to the customer’s needs.
