In response to Re: Follow up on sewage ejector pump
: I have a quote in Asheville, NC for $3800 to:

: 1. Rough in all water and waste in new basement bath.
: 2. Install 1 sewage ejector pump (Zoeller 1/2 hp package - roughly $475 most places I've seen)
: 3. Set owner provided fixtures.
: 4. Obtain permits and inspections.

: I will do all the concrete busting and site prep. Time estimate for 1 plumber is 3 days (granted, this is just an estimate)... there are seven 90 degree turns total and a 14 feet rise to the stack...I live in town...drive time is negligable.

: Does this quote seem a bit high? Simple math says yes but I know there are many variables here and a pretty nasty job so I don't want to go chasing multiple quotes if this seems reasonable...

: Thanks for the input...

I think it is folly to not get at least 2 (and 3 is better) estimates on a job that is over a couple thousand, unless you have a long standing working relationship with this person. I even encourage people that I am bidding for to get other estimates. I don't want anyone to think I am ripping them off.
As hj mentioned, it is tough to bid remotely.
