Can I negotiate an estimated cost of a repair with a contractor?

I am in the process of negotiating a repair to my community pool and after reviewing the proposed estimate for the cost of a replacement part and the installation, I discovered that the part that needs to be replaced is being sold to me at a significant mark up that is almost twice the retail price and two and a half times the wholesale price. The point of contact for this company claims that I cannot negotiate a lower price for the replacement part. his response to my attempt at negotiating a lower price was "take it or leave it".

    So charging consumers labor, taxes, delivery, and a 100% markup on a product only nets a 10% profit?
