    Hello

    Would someone be able to give me a general idea or range of plumbing costs for the following:

    Completely replace pipes on a 55 year old 3 bed 1 bathroom house in Heidelberg with excellent access to the pipes.

    I have no idea at all of the cost and would be very grateful if someone could give me a general idea of what I could expect to pay.

    Thank you

    Ellen

    allow 5-8 hours labour. 70-100 per hour.(if it's easy access)

    parts i'd think would be under 500. most likely.

    good point, i assumed you meant replace old gal pipes (water pipes) for new ones.

    Thanks Elives and rhinsor.

    Very good news so far I thought it would be much more than what you have outlined Elives.

    I am referring to replacing original metal water pipes and I assumed they would be replaced with PVC but I just want the cheapest material and labour to get the job done.

    Thank you
