Hi ,

Just wondered guys and gals how much would a reasonable repair cost on an outside tap .A supposed mate has nearly fitted it and im a tiny bit surprised but maybe im out of touch .

Time and labour will be 90 mins . ( He already did an hour said he just needs 10 mins to fit reducer )

Parts used so far as its in an out building .There are 2 x 90 degree turns as its got to go across a small ceiling ( the feed pipe ) .

1. Outside tap
2. Shut off valve
3. Around 12-15 foot of 22mm copper pipe
4. Plastic Brackets
5. A reducer of 32mm to 22mm from where the mains is .

Thanks in Advance

We are in the midlands Notts area .

I didnt want to say what he is charging as that might influence peoples opinion . I can get pics but not at this moment im afraid .

If i say i was expecting around £70 would i be well out of touch . He is a qualified plumber and does a damn good job but seeing as he is a mate i would expect him to cost it properly and knock a tiny bit off seeing as he knows us . Thats how i operate with friends .

Ok, I thought it would be cheaper as he is a mate. The next question would be how much of a mate is he and is this tap in your own property or for a property you own?

Materials must cost £40/£50? and does he live local? i done a few small jobs(brickwork) for a friend a while ago charging him £150 a day at weekend, then his neighbour wanted some work doing and he told him that i charge £150 a day, he thought that was my normal rate, some people are so out of touch with what tradesmen need to earn.
