Clearly you're not a service plumber if you don't carry some faucet washers.

Also, not sure why he said o-rings, ain't no o-rings on those. Unless he meant the bonnet washer. I guess you could use o-rings but likely the old washer will be fine and if not I would prolly use some teflon tape. But if you need an o-ring assortment JS makes that too.

If you really want to be prepared get a 10-24 jiffy tap and a handful of 3/8" and 1/2" slotted button head brass screws. This way you can tap out any size washer screw hole to the now standard 10-24 and put a new screw in. The jiffy tap and screws will fit in that washer box. Might not be a bad idea to throw a small drill bit in there too in case a screw breaks off. Drill it out and then tap to 10-24. I suggest a left hand drill bit if you can find one.

Ok, This is a simple fix, a couple of washers and maybe tightening the packing nut and/or use some Teflon tape.
You’re In and out in 20 mins and charge a premium flat rate(for saving the client from a costly drywall repair)... on to the next call..

Or spend 1-2hrs cutting The dry wall open, change the 2 valves, cleaning up.. for slightly more then the 20 min repair.

At worst he would have to resurface the seats which is no problem either.

Yes the apprentice does the driving i do the teaching, its a win win.
Been a big pain in the butt an very humbling at the same time.
Get my wheels back in a few months after 4 years pretty excited. Made alot of life style changes and grown up alot since. Went from an angry depressed alchy to a contributing member of society like the rest of the world thanks to other people who helped me realize i was the problem an not everyone else. Tough love

As for this little job i told my uncle what to get an i will repair it.

I say this not to squeeze money out of my customer, but to better their home and piece of mind.

As always itís up to the customer, but they might end up paying more repairing than replacing. Charge for your time researching. Itís no longer your time, itís their time.
I don't like to upsell either but money losing jobs make the 'cheaper' option and not wanting to upsell go flying out the window.
