If your water service line fails, it can cause: a visible water leak in your yard, water leaks in your basement or low water pressure.

Most basic homeowners insurance and local utilities or municipalities do not cover repairing or replacing the exterior water service line that is damaged due to normal wear and tear, not accident or negligence. Buried pipes break—protect yours with an affordable plan from HomeServe and get protection from high repair costs with access to our 24/7 hotline where you can schedule a repair for your exterior water service line. If you're unsure about your responsibility for the exterior water service line on your property, contact your municipality or local water company.

Eligibility: An owner of both a residential home permanently secured to the ground and the land it is located on may be eligible for coverage. Recreational vehicles or homes on wheels and properties used for commercial purposes are not eligible for coverage. Your property is not eligible if you are aware of any pre-existing conditions, defects or deficiencies with your exterior water service line prior to enrollment. If you live in a development community with a condominium, co-op or homeowners association, your exterior water service line may not be an individual homeowner's responsibility, so please check with your association before accepting this coverage.
Benefit Details: Coverage provides as many service calls as you need for the covered cost to repair or replace a leaking, low pressure, or permanently blocked exterior water service line, for which you have sole responsibility, from your utility's responsibility (the curb stop) or external wall of your well casing to the water meter or main shut-off valve inside your residence, that is damaged due to normal wear and tear, not accident or negligence.
Not covered: Repair to any water line that branches off the main water service line, thawing of frozen pipes, and damage from accidents, negligence or otherwise caused by you, others or unusual circumstances. Additional exclusions apply.
Making a Service Call: Your plan starts the day your order is processed, and there is an initial 30-day waiting period before you can make a service call, giving you 11 months of coverage during the first year. This prevents service calls on pre-existing conditions and helps keep the coverage affordable.
Cancellations after the first 30 days will be effective at the end of the then-current billing month, and you will be entitled to a pro-rata refund less any claims paid (where applicable). You may also contact HomeServe to cancel if you find your utility or municipality provides similar coverage to you at no charge, and you will receive a refund less any claims paid (where applicable).
Renewal: Your coverage is based on an annual contract. Regardless of the payment frequency you select, your service agreement will be automatically renewed annually on the same payment terms you selected at the then-current renewal.
