  • Why Choose this Plan

    Replacing a water service line costs an average of $2,661.*

    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.

  • Overview

    As your home ages, so does the exterior water service line that brings fresh water to your house. If this line breaks or leaks due to ground shifting or extreme temperatures, you could be faced with an expensive repair bill. There's no way to prevent a water service line emergency. Be prepared with an affordable repair plan called Exterior Water Service Line Coverage.

    Leaks and breaks on a home’s exterior water service line can be caused by aging of the pipe, corrosion, extreme temperatures, settling or shifting of the ground. Basic homeowners’ insurance does not typically cover damage due to normal wear and tear. Help get protection from the high cost of repairs with a home service repair plan from HomeServe.

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, up to the benefit amount, for the covered cost to repair or replace a leaking, frozen, low pressure, or permanently blocked exterior water service line, for which you have sole responsibility, or responsibility is shared by no more than one additional dwelling, from your utilities responsibility or external wall of your well casing to the water meter or main shut-off valve inside your home, that is damaged due to normal wear and tear, not accident or negligence.
Not covered: Repair to any exterior water service line that branches off the main line 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 form 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. Upon renewal/reactivation (if applicable), you will not be subject to a waiting period.
Cancellation: You may cancel within 30 days of your start date for a full refund (or less any claims paid if cancelled at any time after renewal/reactivation, where applicable). 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).
