Who can I talk to about what plumbers are allowed to charge for, because I think I have been unfairly charged?

Hi Sandra,

It would probably easier to know what he did & charged you for - as plumbing charges can vary so much.

Plumbers rates are all over the place. The guy I use charges $88.00 per hour. He should have stated his fees when you hired him.

Hi Sandra,

I replied earlier and left my number, if you'd like to call I'd be in a better position to reply. Or click the link and email if you wish.

Hi there,

It all depends on which task he performed as it varies in what he had to repair and how it was repaired.

A plumber like any trade can charge for whatever work you have contracted them for. You should also be asking them for a ball park quote prior to starting the work and hiring the trade.
