Hi MistressEll, your post was right on the money BUT if one said the price they quoted was really cheap that could open a Pandora's box.
"plumbers charge way to much"
If one said what about the removal of the cracked urinal and the installation of a new one plus the tile work and the dangers the plumbers are exposed to people do not want to be confused with facts.
I find it easier to just agree and add some fuel to their fuming tempers as no matter what the school did charge it was more then fair.
Trying to explain all the aspects dealing with public bathrooms would be very difficult when someone only thinks of a urinal cracked and one just replaced.
You did an outstanding post explaining the overhead and training and risks involved with just a fixture replacement.
