    Cost of replacing toilet cistern inner workings - how much should I pay? 19th Aug 08 at 9:36 PM
    Our new toilet cistern inner workings from were faulty. They provided replacements and asked us to get a plumber to do the work, pay for it and send the bill to them for reimbursement. The plumber charged us 95, which we duly paid. then refused to re-imburse us saying it should have cost no more than 30. I can't believe anyone would travel to do any household related job for 30 including 17.5% VAT. Can readers give me an idea of how much it costs for a plumber to visit, drain the toilet, and replace the inner workings in total ie. not just the ballcock but everything. We live in the country about 15 miles from the nearest town if that is relevant.

    Thanks Binder
