Local licensed plumber happy to assist at a time of your convenience.

All my work is backed by comprehensive insurance and comes with a workmanship guarantee.

My offer is for the replacement of both kitchen taps (so they match) with a suitable alternative. The quoted figure covers 1 hour of labour and Airtasker fee only.

A chrome bib tap retails for $25 per unit. This should be paid separately in order for you to avoid paying excess Airtasker fees on materials.

Happy to discuss other alternatives if you want a different tap choice and quote accordingly.

Kind regards,

Photo supplied William, can adjust offer to include material once you accept. Taps below retail for $25. Obviously this doesn't include Airtasker fee.
So your offer is $142 and pay separately $50 for taps and upon completion total cost would be $192 ?
Can you do it 28th at 5.30pm ?
Isnt it cheaper to put mixer ?
I can do it today if you like
My offer Inc servicing both taps changing O rings and washers I can also reseat if that's the issue. you really should do both taps when you do one as normally the other tap is also on the way out
Reseating won't work if there is a deep cut in the seat and is badly damaged you didn't answer my question regarding the leak
Leak from mouth not from handle which is the case with o ring. For $60 can u replace if required with receipts forward ded?
Yes that is correct but 9 times out of 10 the crack isn't that deep, plus if the crack is too deep you'll have to replace the actual tap but the only way to find out how bad it is, is by re-seating. Plus if it is leaking out the o-ring that'll be fixed when I service the tap eg. clean & re-grease the spindle and replace the o-ring.
Can you do tomorrow?
Need to check for someone to be there. And what exactly do with reseating, is it grind and level etc the washer base?
Yes I can do tomorrow but not until 5pm as I already have jobs booked in, reseating is grinding the seat where the washer sits on flat & with no cracks!.
5pm looks ok but I will have to confirm
No worries just let me know, thank you!
