Hi. Would this voucher be enough to cover the labour for removing my existing hot water water cylinder and installing a new high pressure one (I will supply the new cylinder myself). If not, how many hours extra would it take and what would those additional hours cost ?

S.commented about 1 hour ago

Hi there
We have a shower door that has snapped off it's pivot blocks. I have bought the new parts but am having trouble removing the old ones. Would you be able to rehang the door?

Can't wait to see the answers - don't you love the optimism of the guy who wants his HWC changed out in two hours - no bloody idea.  They think it's like a MacDonald's drive thru.
Have you learned lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you?  Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed the passage with you?  (Walt Whitman 1819-1891)  American Poet

hi guys, some answers and more requests,and yes Badger thank the lord for cheap CPD`training` cheers
If you really need convincing.
If your place is feeling a bit leaky, this treat could be just what you need.
Donít let your budget put a kink in repair plans - for $89, youíll receive two man hours of plumbing labour from Moods Plumbing, valued at $190. Man hours are how many people will be working on your pipes. Plumbers donít come in twos, itís a stereotype weíve been trying to break ever since those brothers showed upÖ Mario and Luigi.
Those two are plain awful, breaking into castles and stomping on turtles - There'll be none of that with Moods Plumbing.
Their trained plumbers can help with whole heaps of small jobs around the house including: installing new hot and cold pipework for bathrooms, kitchens, hot water cylinders, laying new waste pipes and pretty much any kind of plumbing maintenance - if youíre about to get started on that long awaited new bathroom or kitchen, let this treat kick off your renovation.
While DIY plumbing seems like a great idea, anyone who has tried to take care of that funny sound coming from under the sink will be quick to tell you the ensuing flood is no fun. Moods Plumbing will take care of all the leaky taps and dripping pipes you've got around the place without destroying your home.
So, flush your worries down the drain, and let Moods Plumbing turn those plumbing jobs from a pipe dream, into a reality!

M, Hot water Cylinder conversions usually take 4-6 hours.
S, without looking at the Job I would estimate 3-4 hours. Is the Spa indoor or outdoor?
Gillian, there is no travel charge to Kaiapoi .
L, Yes I can hang shower doors.
D. commented about 4 hours ago
Hi, we are looking to put a shower over our bath - would 2 hours be enough time?
M. commented about 4 hours ago
We have a slow draining toilet issue requiring drain unblocking ASAP. Could you fit it in this week if I called you today after purchasing the deal? We are in Strowan.
Representative for Moods Plumbing Limited commented about 3 hours ago
D- Showers over baths can be tricky as its usually necessary to take off wall linings and run new pipes up wall cavity then conceal them again before fittings can go back on . If you have a builder or handy man doing the walls it would be around 2 or 3 hours for me.

Hi there I have a vanity that needs removing and a better second hand one installed would this be accepted as part of your deal? Hubby too lazy to do it !

So hes saying i charge out at 44.50 / hr while outher plumbers are charging out at $95 / hr 
and he is only quoting on labour.
I wonder what hes charging for material.
Perhaps i should review my charge out rates..... ;)
