Most basic homeowners insurance and local utilities or municipalities do not cover repairs to the exterior water service line or sewer/septic line on your property. 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 repairs.

*In some towns, the service lines beyond the property boundary to the main connection may be an additional responsibility of the homeowner but are not included in this coverage. Coverage includes the external septic line but excludes any repair work needed on your septic tank, leaching field, pump or grinder. National average repair costs as of March 2018. No charge for covered repairs up to your annual benefit amount. If your home has a private well, coverage also provides protection against repair or replacement of your water service line from the well casing to the external wall of your home.

Exterior Pipe Plan

30 Day Money Back Guarantee

Why choose this plan:

  • 24-hour repair service
  • Local, licensed and insured technicians
  • One-year guarantee on all covered repairs

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, settling or shifting of the ground. If this line fails, repair or replacement can be expensive and most basic homeowners insurance doesn't cover repairs to the line on your property from normal wear and tear. This plan covers both your water service line and sewer/septic line, which can help you deal with the expense of covered repairs.

$10,000 is the combined max annual benefit for 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 (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).
What quality of repair can I expect?
Local, licensed and insured plumbers 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.
