Sorry but the above quote is wrong a 6mm cable can run a shower unit up 9kw from 32 amps anything above 9kw would require a 10mm cable with a 45 amp breaker also it would depend on the distance of the cable from the consumer unit to the shower.

Maybe the cable is run in an insulated wall and covered with 100mm insulation in the roof space an inspection is required to work the correct rating out guys good luck with it all

Plumber wanted to look at / fix our shower - no cold water coming through (plenty of hot). May be just the mixer tap?

Whats with the lols sam ?
alot of plumbers will charge those sort of prices and 300 is about the middle of the road ????
i have no doubt what with the current work situation the job will get done cheaper, but there are guys out there who would also charge more for a similar job !
dunno about the 2 men bit though,, 1 man could easily do this in a day based in an out and in swap !

The LOL is about the price, but also the giving of advice when not experienced to do so, also quoting blind and in general which is a major no no.

My advice to the OP is to search the recommended tradesman thread and then make a decision who to call, all a thread like this achieves is people coming on saying 'call me'.

I very rarely find a straightforward swap job, pipework often has to be remodeled, new fittings etc... If its a 1 day job the OP or tiler will then have to tile around W.C. and basin, vinyl cut around ped and w.c. There is simply more to it than a couple of guys one day, bish bash bosh.

I suppose it depends on the OP's budget and what they expect in terms of quality and workmanship. I have seen some absolute shockers in my travels, some from tradesmen off the forum as well and you could tell it was a one day quick swap, but again it comes down to budget.

I agree 100% with Sam.
Of course budget plays a big part but how anyone can give a blind price is utter madness. Oh, yeah, hes not qualified is he so of course he'd know!!

How many suites does a plumber have to fit to be experienced?and how long do you need to make the swap given you have an equally skilled operative to guide you?

I agree with Sam. But then the OP is asking for a straight swap and like for like. Usually though it is not that straight forward. Unless the new suite is absolutely the bang same size and dimensions then there are other issues to sort out.

If after reading the OP someone quotes blind then the OP might just get what they have asked for. The 'other' adjustments of course will be extra. This is where the OP can get themselves into trouble.

i seriously doubt anyone has ever done a "STRAIGHT SWAP"
a "STRAIGHT SWAP" is puttin a new suite in place of an old,, and the price tag usually includes ifs and buts,
think about it 300 -350 for a days work ????? theres more than enough in those sorts of prices for any ifs and buts !
its easy to give a price for a straight swap without seeing it when your giving those sorts of prices, but if you want to be competative i agree 100% you need to see a job,
the reccomendations thing can be a bit misleading aswell,,
people have different standards,, i used a window fitter who was highly reccomended by wanna my old work buddies,,
from bitter experience i can honestly say i wouldnt let him reglaze my garden shed, never mind my house !

Hi,
Can anyone recommend a bathroom fitter who would be willing to travel to Doncaster to carry out the work?
The bathroom needs a total overhall and we need someone who can do everything - installation, electrics, plumbing, tiling, plastering etc.
Thanks
