Kitchen Sink & Faucet

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

Customer Symptoms:

A homeowner contacted us to let us know that their kitchen sink was constantly leaking. The homeowner tried tightening the faucet, but the steady leak drip persisted. The homeowner called us to let us know about the noise being an issue and was worried about the water bill as the leak was constant.


Our technician went to the home to investigate the faucet and noticed several issues. Although the faucet was relatively new, a few parts were in poor condition and which was likely the cause of the leak. The O-ring was worn out, the aerator was clogged, and the washer was in poor condition.


Our plumber had all the replacement parts in the tool, and the homeowner quickly gave his consent to replace the worn-out parts. The technician unscrewed the faucet and the remaining components and swapped out the parts that were no longer functional. The aerator was clogged with mineral deposits that had built up over time. In addition, the washer between the faucet and spout had worn out and was the incorrect size. Due to being too large, the friction between the washer and faucet caused the washer to wear out. Once all the parts were replaced, the leak was gone, and the homeowner let us know that he would report to us if it would come back.

Kitchen & Bathroom Drains

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

Customer Symptoms:

A homeowner contacted us to report that they were getting a constant blockage in their kitchen and bathroom drains. They would often have to use a plunger to unclog the drains and were annoyed as the problem was becoming more frequent.


Our technician arrived at the home and inspected the toilets and kitchen sinks in the home. None of the fixtures appeared to be leaking or and were functional, and he took a look at the drainpipe in the basement of the home. The drainpipe was a cast-iron stack and was original to the house, which was about 70 years old. Our technician pushed a camera down and found that the diameter of the cast iron pipe was now 2” due to corrosion build-up over the years.


The technician advised the homeowner that the drain was far too small to still be functional. The minimum stack requirement for toilet stacks is 3”. The technician advised that the cast iron piping be replaced with ABS, a newer plastic pipe that won’t corrode and reduce in diameter. The technician returned to the shop, grabbed the materials, and replaced that section of the pipe in the home. The homeowner reported back that there were no blockage issues since then.

Clogged Toilet

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

Customer Symptoms:

A customer called us to let us know that their toilet was clogged. The homeowner had attempted to use a plunger, but it would not work. In addition, the homeowner had lifted the tank lid and lifted the flapper valve to make the water go down, but it still didn’t work.


Our plumber arrived at the home and did the usual inspections, including using the plunger and lifting the flapper. After the water failed to go down, the technician noted they would need to inspect the drain itself and uninstall the toilet.


Our technician unhooked the water supply, unscrewed the mounting ring and removed the toilet. After inspecting the drain, the technician snaked and cleaned out the drain, which was in poor condition. The drain was completely clogged from a buildup of flushed away items. The technician then re-installed the toilet and tested the flush mechanic several times. The homeowner called back several days later to report that there were no more issues with the toilet.
