First quote for the repair was to 'take out toilet, remove damaged top floor layer of 3ply, replace, refit toilet and fix leaks' £507 + VAT 20%.

Now that job should take me an amateur, 20mins + 5mins + 30min +20mins + plumber + £20 sheet of 3ply (got that on order with free delivery).  Shocked Let us be generous an hour and a half + a plumber on callout £45 + £15 material.

Tomorrow a friend is going to be on hand for a laugh while I mess this up. Cheesy I am going to take out the toilet and the 3ply to see how bad the contamination is. The insurance inspector's device beeped, beeped, then screamed and went all the way red, saturation it seems.

That quote made me stress for about 3minutes, which was long enough to use some unflattering terms before I decided to do what I can myself. Now I am relaxed and  Grin with just a little Cheesy

Be well all.

The quote to fix a leaky toilet cistern and shutoff valve was eyewatering, £99 per hour. A plumber at £99 per hour plus VAT plus parts.

How is it where you are?
