Water and sewer line insurance

Water and sewer line insurance

If you are a home owner who has ever experienced problems with your water or sewer lines, you know that repairs can be very costly. Fortunately, there is low-cost insurance available that can significantly defray, if not cover the entire cost of the repair.

The following is directly off the National Water Company website.

National Water Company is a Program Administrator offering underground water and sewer line insurance and warranty programs direct to homeowners, and through a network of licensed Agencies such as AAA Washington and many more. If you’re like many homeowners, you may be unaware that your home Insurance Does Not generally provide repair coverage for your underground water and sewer pipes leading to the street. Over time, unpreventable, environmental conditions cause exterior water and sewer lines to deteriorate. The cost to locate, excavate and repair these underground service lines can have a serious impact to your finances.”

As of this posting (7/1/18), the coverage for exterior water and sewer lines is just $12.09/month.

Coverage for interior water and sewer lines and exterior electrical lines is also available at similarly low rates.

As with any insurance policy, be sure to read the fine print to know exactly what is and isn’t covered if you decide to sign up.
