Nick was going to his office and he meet Mr. Pulaski who is cleaning the water fountain, on his way

Nick: Do you need some help with that?
Mr. Pulaski: Ah, bilge ring keeps crappin' out, blocking up the damn pump. I got it now, Nick.
Nick: Last time, you nearly took out every sink in the quarter, you know.
Mr. Pulaski: Hey, that was those kids messing with the water main.

What is the meaning of "bilge ring"?

It's some piece of the plumbing. I'm not sure that's a term which is actually used; it's possible the author is not familiar with plumbing terminology.
