Why are plumbers so expensive? my house was built in 1958 and of course needs lots of repair. I got an estimate for $3800.00. the dishwasher started all this. it wouldn't empty. our pipes were all clogged. he had to cut one out and run a new one and put in a new garbage disposal, etc. It was an all day job. it ended up costing $2900.00.
now my water heater is going out and of course there is a pipe pushing on the heater exhaust and other things and that estimate is $3000.00.
I'm not working and living on SS and unemployment.sigh.
I'm going to go to Home Depot or Lowes and see what they have in water heaters and if they install.
goodness, I can't afford this house!!
