Probably price is fine.(about ? hundred ).

It usually takes 2 plumbers all day, so 1600 hundred for labor, plus material.

Seriously, when i bid those, when im the first, people look at me like i am crazy, but then they usually call back when they get higher prices from other competitors, dont be suprised if you here back from him. I priced one the other day for an aisa guy that has a 100 gl heater that isnt enough. He said i was the lowest and that they would do it next month, well see.

The real pisser here is how did he get his hands on a Noritz to begin with? This of course is a rhetorical question. He got it from e-bay. I sell Noritz partly because I think it's the best product out there and partly because they make a better effort than anyone else at keeping Johnny home owner from getting his hands on them. They are not doing enough but at least it's more than any other brand. So far I've only been price shopped on my "labor" once but I expect it will happen again. I think the way I will handle it is to let the ho provide the tankless, I charge my normal install price including my mark up, minus my cost for the heater and no warranty. The mark up on the product is part of the deal. You can provide the unit if you want but you won't save any money and you will lose my warranty.

I agree with your logic in pricing with customer supplied items. Do you tell the HO there is still mark-up on it?

My justification would be this to the owner "If I supply XYZ and something goes wrong during the install, my supplier with whom I have a great relationship will give me a substantial break if I need to purchase a replacement. We do a lot of business together and look out for each other. Mr. HO, you paid retail for your item and if anything happens to it, I am on the hook at the retail price. It is only fair that I am compensated for my risk. Consider it insurance."
