Plumbing

Approximately after a year and four months of sleepless nights, I managed to convince a plumber to come around and replace my dripping bathroom faucet. I used 18-192 (Techniki Kalipsi) and for the ridiculous amount of 70Eur I can now enjoy the silence... :-)

In case you think 70Eur is absurd, here are a couple DIY links:

(70EUR breaks down to: 24.5Eur for a new faucet, 14 to register as a member of 18-192, 30 is the cost of labour, and 1.5Eur tip)

So the question is how you become Techniki Kalypsi 18-192 and get 14 Euros for every visit with just a phone centre.

Interesting thought... 14 Eur is a one-off fee... you don't pay it for EVERY visit, just once.

So the guy actually earns 44 Euro for his job. I knew I should become a plumber to earn money in Greece...

Are you a narcomaniac? 30Eur is the cost of labour...
14Eur goes to 18-192.
The plumber is their subcontractor, bot.
