Is there a plumber in the house?

I need a plumber to install a hot water heater that I'll probably buy from Lowes.

They want to charge $175.00 to install and haul away the old one. I'm simply replacing the old one that's in the garage; the electrical and plumbing is in place and I'll toss in a brew when done.

That seem kinda high to put in a Whirlpool 46.5 Gallon Electric Low Boy Water Heater since the unit costs $244.00.

So I let my fingers do the walking and you wouldn't believe the quotes!

$200; $300 and $690. Are you kidding me?

Is there a plumber in the house?

Earl Chandler of Chandler Plumbing is the most honest plumber I know.

Lawd have mercy! That's an outrage.

Dude, do it yourself. I'm as inept a homeowner as exists, but I changed mine in 30 minutes or so.

It comes with instuctions.

Short & Fat: I don't mess with plumbing or especially electricity! If you know to solder and do the hookups, then let's talk offline!
