If your water service or sewer/septic line fails, it can cause:

  • water leaks or sewage in your yard
  • water leaks or sewage in your basement
  • low water pressure

As a homeowner, you may be responsible for the exterior water or sewer/septic line on your property, and you may have to arrange and pay for any necessary repairs. 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.

*National average repair costs within the HomeServe network as of June 2020. No charge for covered repairs up to your 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.


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.
