Hi there,

I’m in Australia. I have an old bottle trap pipe in my bathroom under basin. And plumber said we should get I think it’s called p-trap or smp pipe. Thing is he said he would have to remove bottle trap and cut some of tiles open. He said it was generally subjective and couldn’t give me a quote if he finishes job and replaces bottle trap. How much would it cost to remove bottle trap and install new one.. I’m not talking about tiling. Just the instillation of new trap. I’m annoyed he couldn’t give me a an approximation.

By new pipe I meant p trap or smp pipe whatever it’s cLlec but no bottle trap pipe anymore

I’m annoyed he couldn’t give me a a new approximation for the new p trap or smp pipe or whatever it’s called. Hence why I want a second opinion here..

Hi there,

Well initially it was coz the sink was blocked as some glass bits fell down the bathroom basin sink hole. He had to take it off, and he said it’s leaking and should be replaced as it’s old and also servicing the bottle trap is harder. He put new tap on. I think the issue why is some leaking from the bottle trap and also old and rusty as he had to take it off to remove the glass bits in the pipe

"servicing the bottle trap is harder", well unless it is something you aussies do I`ve never heard that one. Might add it to my website and see how far that one gets me. :D

Hi Steve,

If your plumber can't service / clean the bottle trap and has said that you have to remove tiles so that he can fit a new trap - get another plumber!!!
He obviously has a very limited skill set if he made those recommendations.

No I can't - just been to the neighbours to unblock their toilet.
Just what I wanted to do after Sunday evening dinner.

By the way, I can't wait until I switch my phone on tomorrow morning.
I've decided this weekend to not switch my phone on on Sundays and not look at emails either.

I'm going to start a new thread - going off topic.

Why does he need to interfer with the tiles, is he suggesting the pipe size is different to a modern trap ?
Sounds like a donk
