      I was recently charged $200 including GST for one hour ten minutes work with an eel for a straightforward rodding job. Costs consisted of $40 call out, (on a weekday) $102 for one hour 10 minutes from arriving on the job until presenting the bill and $40 for the eel – all plus GST. This seems over the odds boys even if you do have a Ph Drainage
