Thinking of replacing the bathroom suite. My plumber has advised me to replace the gravity fed tank the roofspace with a hot water pressurised tank which will give much better hot water pressure throughout the house. He quoted me 1500 for these works alone. As I'm no plumbing expert, should I expect to pay that kind of money?

Is that for just his time or is that for all his plumbing work and the pressurised water tank?
1500 is for installation of the pressurised tank and the materials required.

The bathroom fit out will obviously cost over and above this.

I  renovated the house last year and the pressurised system was 1500 euros additional. So your quote is sterling and a little bit more expensive .
