Home Warranties Now Available For Water Services, Sewer Laterals

By Jeff Griffin, Senior Editor | January 2012, Vol. 67 No. 1

The most important exclusions of HomeServe’s water service line coverage, he said, are thawing of temporarily frozen pipes, pre-existing service line breaks, piping inside the home and sprinkler system piping.

For example, if a line has been in the ground for more than 30 years and a portion near its midpoint between meter and house connection breaks or otherwise fails, would it be covered by HomeServe's water service line protection plan?

The answer: “Assuming you are the homeowner, and have the responsibly for this section of pipe, this is an excellent example of the type of emergency covered under the HomeServe water service line plan.”
