Plumber raising cost of installing a water softener. We had an estimate from plumber that Lowes uses.
Should have been $347 for unit, install the unit advertised at &168, plus a few parts and installation kit.
They came up with $810. We cancelled our order. We bought the same unit, (had installation kit IN with the softened unit) bought a few pieces of plastic pipe and a couple of elbows, our installer wanted a bunch of unnecessary pieces until his labor doubled. My husband installed whole unit with 2 extra pieces of plastic.
It took him about an hour and a half.
