Allied-aerator
In our mid-century-modern kitchen, we have a single-lever faucet that's at least 15 years old. It's nothing special; it's a little leaky if I move the lever a certain way but it gets the j-o-b done. What really bothers me is that water shoots out the tap in a 'split stream' instead of a nicely aerated gush. Do I need a new faucet? Nope, I just need to spend about 15 minutes cleaning the hard water...
QA-with-Ray
Dear Ray,My garbage disposal is a Sears Kenmore 1HP model, circa 1988. It's been reliable for years but in the past few weeks, the blades no longer rotate reliably when I flip the "on" switch. A well-placed broom handle usually loosens the motor and gets the blades going. After returning from a 2-week vacation however, the disposal has stopped working altogether. I've tried pushing the re-set butt...
Allied reddi-rooter
We love our toilet – flushing ‘stuff’ down the drain is so very satisfying.  Although our conventional wisdom is “if you wouldn’t eat it, don’t flush it,” who wants to put that gnarly black, slimy hair clog from the lavatory drain in the trash can?

garbage-disposal
With six people in our household, our garbage disposal is used from dawn until late in the evening. We LOVE our disposal. It's a super-sturdy ¾ horsepower ISE model; we've been using it for over 20 trouble-free years. It liquefies our morning coffee grounds, lunch and dinner scraps, and past-due leftovers in seconds, with nothing more than a heavy dose of cold water to wash them down. Gasket Gunk...
Cincinnati-grease-trap
A recent walk through downtown Cincinnati from 4th Street to 13th Street was an eye-opener. The downtown restaurant scene is rapidly expanding. There are more restaurants in the 45202 zip code than ever before. For plumbers, that means one thing: Grease trap calls are gonna go sky-high! For those new to the restaurant business, clean and well-maintained grease traps are one of the keys to a succes...
