Now that we are on to plumbing, I’d never hired a plumber before except to do the whole plumbing for a couple houses but otherwise did everything myself. When we re-did the kitchen last summer, the new sink was a little lower. I knew I was going to have a problem making the tight connections so bought some parts for $30 at Menards. Two trips to the hardware store for another $25 in parts and no way could I make the connection-off by about an inch. So stopped by the plumbers for my third trip. He came out the next morning, re-did the drains to the wall, and after he made two trips back to the shop for parts, had it done in a couple hours. I got the bill and it was $134. I’ve got a whole box of parts though if I ever need them.
I drove to the plumbers and the hardware store.
