UGH. Plumber gone crazy

Had a plumber out to replace a stack. In doing so, he chopped the water supply lines and suggested I run a new gas line in track pipe. The water supplies were all rerun in pex. The home is a 700 sf home. What would be a fair price, parts and labor for new pex and trac pipe, individually. Please keep in mind, he was already on site for the stack. I think I'm getting you know whatted... I realize this varies a lot from region to region... thanks

I am not sure I follow your post, you say your plumber chopped the supply line, if that is the case the he should replace it at no cost, as for getting pricing here for any work, it will not be accurate.

We are not there, we can't see what you are looking at, we don't know about interferences, I think that if you want to get comparison pricing then you should bring in another reputable contractor.



When its all said and done there is usually more said than done

So he cut the supply line which is pex? That's a pretty simple fix, I'm not quite sure what's going on here.

totally agree if one of my plumbers cut a line we would fix it at no cost. i would not pay for his mistake. and yes pex is a very easy fix.
