Plumbing prices for diy
DIY plumbing can save you a lot of money, if you know what you are doing. Simple plumbing jobs like unblocking a sink or fixing a dishwasher can probably be attempted by any competent person. More complicated DIY plumbing jobs such as repairing leaking pipes, replacing radiators, or indeed installing a whole central heating system, should only be attempted if the DIY'er is extremely confident and has all the correct plumbing tools.

|Replaced Central heating (grundfos 1550) pump,bought used from Ebay @ 99p + £8.99 postage. I think I got it cheap because it was a 'bare pump' sold without base, its just held in place with allen head bolts, and I believe potential bidders were wary of this..? EEEASY 30minute job,(close isolating valves beforehand). Some charged £100 plus..Sheeeesh!||£10||item/job||Luton||2009-12-03|
|Turned off water. Drained the system. Removed one bathroom Radiator. Replaced radiator for temporary period with 2 x 15" elbows and 2ft of copper 15mm pipe. Turned water back on and checked for leaks - no more than hour of work. Just have to replace the radiator next week when I finish the bathroom. Unqualified Plummer - dont let them rip you off - John Guest - or Speedfir fitiings make basic plumbing childs play.||£11||item/job||Crawley||2008-11-25|
