Replacement Of Taps And Glass Gaskets

Recommended Posts

Anyone here knows what the estimate for replacing a leaky tap? The screw securing the tap is all stripped. Also who know were to get the plastic gaskets/liners edging glass panels used in showers? No luck finding them so far. Thanks.

Taps are cheap... like bepgof stated, range from $20 to $2000.

Around $50~$80, you get buy from hardware shop in neighbourhood hardware shop.

Branded ones, go to the 'boutiques' (if you know what I meant).

I DIY my own tap replacement, so don't know how much but think probably $30~$50 dollars for labor/transport. Tap excluded. My friend once got a person to replace his leaking tap (including the tap) and it cost $150.00 (abt 2 years ago). And the tap cannot choose, he replace with whatever he has in his van but is brand new.

The plastic gasket for the glass edge is available at Home-Fix and Self-fix.

Singaporean men these days....sigh :o

No money to buy a toolbox. But got $ buying many pairs of shoes.

Don't know what is +/- screw drivers, but know how to screw ppls.

Don't know how to replace a blown bulb, but keep changing his mobile phones.

Don't know where to buy taps....., but know where sell nice food.

Everyone is different... maybe we are just better with our hands.

Others maybe are good in something else.

In order to be able to enjoy the 'wants' that you describe above (shoes, mobile phone, nice food), they must be able to afford it. So maybe they are making a lot more $ than us.

Last night I met my ex-colleague. His brother in law bought a condo and renovation just completed. He actually paid $400 to engage cleaners to come in the house and clean-up before they move-in.

Frankly, I din know this service is available. But well, they obviously can afford it.

It's something more than 'we are just better with our hand'

My Mind is sound, Heart is good and Soul is solidly founded.

Upon children's request, I bought a MPV. They chosen the colour.

They like to swim just 'downstair', I bought a condo.

Now staying in resale 5-rm, a FH condo on rental.

I've plenty of life/investment/medical insurance covers.

I don't buy 4D/Toto, I invested in stock mkt.

I've more than 5Cs. My mind is super sound.

But I still use hands.....

I used to have 2 maids when kids were young.

We ate over same table same time.

I donate, gave free tuition...

I consume meanwhile contribute...

I let my heart feels...hands do the jobs.

I believe in God.

We come with hands empty, body will return to dust one day.

What good if one can earn the whole world but lose his soul?

Good for you. I am not like you.

Living in a 4 room HDB, not other real estate.

Insurance, minimum only.

No investment.

Owns a car (pre-own) but bought it base on budget.

Primarily need it for work, so company gave an allowance for it. Otherwise won't be affordable for me.

Weekday, family duty is a driver to send everyone to MRT station and school before I send myself to work.

Weekend, family duty is to be maid. Wife not the kind that do housework, so I have to do laundry, ironing, house cleaning, toilet washing, etc....

When things break down, I transform into the handy man (or I try my best).

So I DIY mainly to save that $. But I do enjoy it (at least most of the time).

Bro, we defer consumption by DIY. PPls consume on credit.

35% in USA facing Ah Long(debt collectors).

Why?

Lifestyle choices!

Current public media cultures encourage spend! spend! spend!

Current schools tell graduates to be entrepreneurial: u see all the 'small small' shops run by school leavers...many within 2 years 'close shop'.

All, incl engineering graduates having herding effect -rush to banking/finance industry for 'rice bowl'

I 'good' because I walked 'longer road' than you.

Make sure fully redeem your mortgage by 45-50 yo.

Keep in mind 4 asset classes: cash/insurance/property/stock

The 2000 tap must be gold plated, lol
