Hi there,

I recently bought a 20yo condo and was advised by our home inspector to get the supply tubes for our bathroom sinks/toilets reinstalled with braided ones. I got a plumber to give us some quote when he troubleshooted our faucet and he suggested the following:


- Cut out old toilet globe valve shut off and install new quarter turn ball valve shut off. ($165 per toilet)

- install new toilet braided supply tube; ($15 per toilet)

- remove old ball cock toilet fill valve from toilet and install new fluidmaster pro fill valve ($85 per toilet)

- remove toilet flapper form toilet and install new hornet flapper; ($10 per toilet)

SINKS (x3)

- remove old bathroom sink supply tubes and install new stainless steel braided supply tubes; ($82.50 per sink)

I was wondering if anyone can advise if this quote is justified? And, are there any tasks among this list that you would suggest I learn to do by myself?

Thanks in advance for all your comments!

Besides replacing the main shut off for the toilets. I'm sure you can do all the supply line replacements yourself.

As long as those costs include labour the cost is appropriate.

Braided supplies are good but don't change them for no reason.

A fluidmaster fill valve costs under 20$ and is super easy to change.
