    Daily rates for plumbing work


    Whats the average daily rate for a plumber? Excluding copper / pex etc. To do some lets say re-routing of heating pipes to under the floor or decommission / re-route a radiator?

    "I would say an average day rate where I am from which is Essex, would be between £160- £250 dependant on the engineers experience and quality of work. You could easily get someone to work for less but then you would be sacrificing quality in my opinion."

    "Anything from £60 and above depending on the Company. Each company has overheads to cover, not just the plumber who turns up at the job."

    "£200-£300 is reasonable. Depends on experience and job that requires doing. For example, clearing a blocked drain would attract a higher fee due to the hazard and unpleasantness."

    "150 - 300 depending on who you ask to quote. Ask a few for a price."
