Despite a slight reduction in price, plumbing remains one of the priciest services in NSW. Recent figures show that the hourly median rate of local plumbers declined by only 1% in FY15. From $80/hr in FY14, the median price is now at $79/hr. Premium plumbing businesses charge about $85/hr. If you're looking to save a few dollars, there are some budget plumbers who only charge $60/hr for basic plumbing jobs.
The cost of a plumbing service across Australia varies greatly depending on location. Of all the Australian states and territories, NSW plumbers charge the fourth lowest prices. The highest prices are charged by plumbers in ACT, while Tas plumbers offer the lowest fees for their services. One positive takeaway for NSW residents is that their state is lucky to be one of only two to get a price reduction for plumbing work.
