Great! Custom shower systems are a lot of fun.

Rob did a decent amount of work at the house I used to live in and he did a great job. Rob, I will be contacting you in the summer for some upgrades at the new house

By the way we have had one with a septic system in our old house for 6 years and now in our new house for 6 years and have never had an issue. We do have an engineered system in the new one though, not sure that makes a difference or not.

I need a new shower head and faucet installed, I already bought cheap parts from home depot, I don't feel like doing the install because access to the pipes behind the tile really sucks and my house is old and shitty.

How much would you charge?

For a competent plumber it should be a quick and easy job and will make it easier for me to put in a nice fixture down the road when I remodel the bathroom. If he is coming out to your house i'd definitely like him to give me a quote.

No. I don't think it's bad.

A new tub/shower valve? $225 if you have the valve. Or do you mean a shower head and a sink faucet?

Ah. Well generally $85/hour with a 1/2hr trip charge. If I were in the area i would eliminate the trip charge, especially considering a shower head and a handle should take considerably less than an hour. I've left a message with Rangell, and I'd gladly swing by when I'm out there.

ok, if you end up doing the work for him send me a pm and let me know and if it is within the "budget" i'll have you stop by and throw it together for me.
