Overview

As a home ages, so do the exterior water service and sewer/septic lines. Leaks and breaks are usually caused by aging of the pipe, corrosion, extreme temperatures, or settling or shifting of the ground. Because these lines are buried underground on your property and not typically inspected, a failure is almost impossible to predict. If these lines fail, replacement can cost thousands of dollars.

Most basic homeowners insurance doesn't cover repairs to the exterior water service line or sewer/septic line on your property from normal wear and tear. Be prepared with an affordable repair plan called Exterior Pipe Plan. $10,000 is the total maximum annual benefit for covered repairs to your exterior sewer/septic line and exterior water service line.

Frequently asked questions

What is the cancellation policy?
You may cancel within 30 days of your start date for a full refund; cancellations after the first 30 days will result in a pro rata refund less any claims paid (where applicable). Most basic homeowners insurance policies do not cover repair or replacement due to normal wear and tear of these components. If you find you have similar protection, you can cancel and receive a refund of your service agreement fee, less any claims paid (where applicable).
What quality of repair can I expect?
Local, licensed and insured technicians perform all covered repairs, which are guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for one year.
Does my homeowners insurance cover this?
Many homeowners believe their utility companies or homeowners insurance is responsible for emergency repairs to the water, sewer, plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems, but the reality is that in many cases you, the homeowner, are responsible. Most basic homeowners insurance policies and local utility companies or municipalities do not cover repairs to or replacement of the major systems in and around your home.
