Replacement of leaking drip valve charges


Hey Guys!

I received a bill from a vendor once he fixed my leaking irrigation valve:

1. Valve black 3/4' 75-DV threaded: 40$
2. Irrigation fittings: 20$
3. Replacement of leaking irrigation valve: 62$

I looked up the 3/4' black valve 75-DV on the internet, and it looks like it's 14$... I am not sure if I looked up the right one or if the vendor is charging me more than he is supposed to...Do these charges sound reasonable to you?

Please, advise!
Thank you!
Sarah E.

So you got no quotes, and expect the guy to not get paid for having to spend the time and money to get the fittings?
How's going to pay his insurance, retirement, advertising, license fees, down time, gas, vehicle, tags, time to write quotes, oil changes, tires, inventory, ECT. ECT.
