Brass should be $1.30-$180 a pound. That said, PVBs are like ~2.5 lbs. So that makes sence to get $550. Plus you do more the i do, and cheaper. I charge $400-$500 depending on how much of a dick you are. That and i hate kneeling on rocks to replace them.

I would charge extra for jobs all the time when I worked for my dads construction company. But he would let me keep the extra.

For every $90 in labor i charge i make 1 hour. So 2 $500 PVBs in one day maks my days hours. Plus i get paid an hour just to show up. One water heater install will give me 5-7 hours depending on what is charged for.

I hear you can get some on Fremont St. I'm sure they'll be high quality! Teeth in or out you make the call.

thats crazy!

We charge $350, standard fee, so unless something is weird thats the price, including a 1 year warranty.

People give me crap for being expensive and laugh when i tell them to call a plumber and get a quote for 400-500.

Then they call back and we go out and replace it, haha.

I'll do it, but when you get it back, it'll be so clean that it looks like a 1973 wagoneer that is in significantly worse condition.

I'm more worried about the extras that come with services from there. I will stick with my wife she's pretty darn good at it.

What kind of extras are we talking about? Do you get a piece of candy at the end?
