The PWD has a set price that is supposed to be used and the plumbers who partake come up on a wheel.
For example $250 for a trap, $50 per foot of drain pipe, etc.
So technically any plumber in the program should charge the same for the same job.
Not all plumbers participate. Not sure if it is because the rates are low or the city is a slow pay.
Get a few estimates from non-participating plumbers and compare it to the PWD estimate.
The one good thing is the repayment is interest free, so a $3000-$4000 job will cost just that and not more.
