    Have been quoted 90 an hr for the above. The plumber reckons it can take up to 2 hrs to fit. It seems a bit pricey for me! Thanks

    I recently had a new kitchen mixer tap fitted and the plumber gave me a fixed price quote before he arrived.
    This was 55 and in the end it took him about 45 minutes for the full job.

    Up to 180 for fitting a tap seems way OTT to me and I would suggest getting a few more quotes.

    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    This sounds like a central London Price with someone like Pimlico Plumbers.
    Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.
