What I charge

My Charges Posted on Wed, June 30, 2010 22:49:34

Im struggling with this one, In London I charged £65 per hour, plus VAT, and £440 for a day, And that was as a general plumber. These days I charge less, £30-50 per hour depending on the work, client and location, and thats as a full commercial engineer. I shall have to see how it goes, but im a little concerned I may not make enough to keep going with this level of registrations.

Excessive Water usage

A client asked for an approximate water usuage for a 40 room hotel today. Not an easy one to answer. Its all down to the number of guests, type of system and how its used. I have the horrible feeling its going to mean a lot of research for not much gain. Oh well customers always right I suppose!
