  • Overview

    Your sewer/septic line may weaken and break over time due to damage caused by normal wear and tear, including aging and ground shifting. Because this line is buried underground on your property and not typically inspected, a failure is almost impossible to predict. Without this optional coverage you may be faced with thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses if a breakdown occurs and replacement is needed.

    With an affordable plan from HomeServe, eligible homeowners can avoid paying for the costs of covered repairs to the line that takes wastewater away from their home. Help get protection from time-consuming and expensive repair costs with Exterior Sewer/Septic Line Plus, which includes up to $5,000 in coverage per service call within property boundary and $5,000 in coverage per service call beyond property boundary for covered repairs. This protection covers all types of pipe material regardless of how old it is. This plan also provides additional landscape restoration up to $1,000 per covered repair.
