    My local plumber installed a valve repair kit and invoiced me $300+ parts+labor, and it STILL LEAKS, worse than before!

    $85 - diagnose
    $85 - pickup ordered part (grrh, ship it to my house..)
    $85 - install valve
    $75 - repair kit

    Now he wants to cut through the wall and replace the whole thing with Moen.
    It will cost me at least another $500.

    All for a small drip, drip, drip !!

    How should I deal with this issue. I just want to pay a fair price for a simple repair!

    FRUSTRATED IN VERMONT..

    If I would have walked into your house

    I would have just told you to change the piece of

    junk right off... with a DELTA 1700..... for $400


    then it would have been your choice wether to gamble
    on repairing it or not.....


    I cant afford to fool around with that brand.....
