Outside Sewer and Outside Water Line Protection
The water and sewer lines outside your home can be some of the most difficult items to repair when a problem occurs. You could be left without water in your home or have water damage from back-ups in your sinks and toilets. A sewer line or water line leak or break could also run hundreds or even thousands of dollars to repair.
Most people don't know who to call for help when a water line supply or sewer line break occurs. With an Outside Water and Sewer Line Protection Plan, you make just one phone call and you'll have peace of mind knowing the repairs will be completed by pre-qualified service providers.

A: Yes. The problem to your water or sewer line will be covered if the tree root is causing a clog at your home.
