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.

Be careful what you ask for original poster, cuz you got exactly what you asked for.

$1100 is CHEAP for the labor for a broken urinal removal and replacement public school anywhere in ohio. $600 is CHEAP for the parts for your kid's mis-deeds. PAY THE BILL and thank your lucky stars you aren't paying THOUSANDS more in lawyers fees, court costs and FINES. If your kid hasn't been EXPELLED, bow down to your school officials and thank them as well.

Breaking a fixture isn't any ERROR, its malicious destruction of PUBLIC PROPERTY.

Thanks Tieger for the kind words.
