There’s a complicated network of pipes, lines, valves and drains that make up your home’s plumbing system. All these parts can get clogged and break as they age and it's your responsibility to fix these problems. Plus, most pipes and drains sit behind your walls, making it more difficult to know when something will go wrong. When problems do occur, leaks and clogged drains need to be fixed quickly before they cause flooding and water damage to your home.

Does my homeowners insurance or local utility cover repairs to the systems around my home?
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, is 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. Homeowners have always been responsible for these types of repairs. However, many are simply not aware. Anything that goes wrong on the your property–such as a tree root growing into a water or sewer line and obstructing it, leaks in interior plumbing pipes or a broken water heater–is typically your responsibility.
