Moira:--I think that you have every right to contest...protest...and detest the bill that you got from the Sunday Plumber.
I happen to work on a time and material basis in my service business. If my standard rate per hour is $65 per hr. at regular time and my overtime rate is $100 per hr..............
And I was called for a similar problem, I would itemize the bill as follows...
Travel time to job (both ways)..1 hr. $100.00
Time on job to install tank.....1 hr. $100.00
Time to locate Tank or part @$100.00 hr. (??????)
Cost of expansion tank $452.64
Misc. parts fittings and expendables ( ????)
I can't give you abottom line in your case, because I really don't have enough information to do so fairly and accurately. The cost of the tank sounds mighty high, (about $300 high) but bear in mind I don't have all the info.
