I needed a new hot water heater, and had tentatively picked out a 40 gal gas unit with a cost of $419. I paid $50 to have Lowe's contracted plumber come out and determine exactly what would need to be done.
The plumber said various things need to be done to bring everything up code, but they would provide Lowe's with the information, and Lowe's would provide me with the final quote. The total cost of water heater and installation was going to be $1,835!
When I said I wanted to see in writing exactly what I was paying for, they said they couldn't do that! They expected me to pay $1,415 for installation and misc. parts, without any supporting detail. Needless to say, I didn't do it, but obviously there are fools out there that would. No more business from me. I expect to see what I'm paying for!!
