  • while most plumbers will use a snake with a camera to do this.. i've heard of small time plumbers doing things this way..

    as long as he fixes the holes and cleans up his work.. then it is not a problem. But be sure to check the paperwork your sister had with him.. if they state that they don't cover damages for repairing the pipe.. then your sister is SOL on that count (for the wall repairs)...

    as for the price: if he repaired the holes and fixed the pipe.. your sister got a deal.

    if he didn't repair the holes and just fixed the pipe... then that's about right.. just a visit can run between 30-50 dollars.. and times that by how many hours he was there for labor, and add in the price of the part...

    this is how my father runs his business.. except he fixes furniture.
