Why Choose this Plan
Replacing your sewer/septic line can cost an average of $5,754‡.
If your sewer/septic line fails, it can cause:
- clogged/backed up drains inside your home
- sewage backed up in your yard
- sewage flooding in your basement
As a homeowner, you may be responsible for the sewer/septic line on your property, and you may have to arrange and pay for any necessary repairs. This illustration shows the repairs that are performed on this line and how much licensed and insured plumbers would typically charge. ‡National average repair costs as of January 2023. No charge for covered repairs up to your service call benefit amount.
- Pipe cutting
- Backfilling of areas disturbed by repairs
- Restoration of your pavement, yard, or landscaping disturbed or excavated as part of a covered repair on your property
- Excavation to expose pipe
- Locating the blockage or collapse
- Repair or replacement of seals and joints
- Pipe replacement or repair
- Fitting external valves
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.
