Outside Sewer Line Protection
Repairing an outside sewer line can be one of the most inconvenient and expensive tasks you face as a homeowner. When your sewer line is broken or clogged, you could experience backups in your sinks and toilets. You may see your landscaping ruined as crews work to repair the line that runs underground through your property. A break can run hundreds or even thousands of dollars to repair, not including the cost to restore your lawn.
With our Outside Sewer Line Protection Plan home warranty, you won’t need to worry about finding a skilled professional or paying the full cost of covered repairs. Make one call to us and we’ll dispatch a pre-qualified service provider who knows how to fix the problem fast — with no deductibles or trip charges for covered repairs.
What We Can Do for You
Choosing our Outside Sewer Line Protection Plan home warranty means you can be protected in case the line connecting your house to the sewer system needs to be repaired or replaced due to normal wear and tear. Most standard homeowners insurance policies do not cover this problem. With the Outside Sewer Line Protection Plan, you have up to $8,500 annually in combined coverage that adds up this way: up to $4,000 per year to repair, replace, or clear clogs, blockages and breaks in your outside sewer line; up to $4,000 per year for repairs to a public sidewalk, driveway or road opening resulting from covered work; and up to an additional $500 per year in reimbursement for restoring landscaping damaged as a result of covered work. See terms, conditions and limitations in the Customer Agreement.
When you purchase the Outside Sewer Line Protection home warranty plan, you’ll also gain peace of mind. That’s because you will not need to pay out of your own pocket for covered work done to the sewer line outside your home, all the way up to your coverage limits.

So with us on your side, you won’t have to worry about finding a contractor you can trust. You will have the help you need to get your life back to normal as soon as possible.

Q: Doesn't my homeowners insurance cover this? Isn't the utility responsible?
A: For most people, the answer to this question is, “No.” Most standard homeowners insurance policies do not cover the service lines. And utility companies are usually only responsible for the mains, but not for the lines that connect the home to the mains. Your individual homeowners insurance and utility policies may vary depending on your location so check with your local officials and utility company.
Q: What are some common problems with outside sewer lines?
A: Tree or plant roots are often drawn to breaks in sewer lines. Those roots can grow into the lines, leading to a blockage.
Q: My sewer line is pretty long. Is there a limit to what length of sewer line will be covered?
A: No. There is no minimum or maximum sewer line length required for enrollment.
Q: Would the septic tank at my home be protected with this plan?
A: The plan would cover an outdoor line leading to a septic tank, but would not cover the tank itself, nor its parts.
Q: Will a sheared line be covered by this plan?
A: Unfortunately, we cannot cover lines that are sheared off at the foundation, which may be the result of a shifting home foundation.
Q: Do I need to have an access point for sewer line service?
A: Yes. Customers must have an access point installed at their home for sewer line work to be done. This access point is sometimes referred to as a “clean-out.” Many homes have access points installed already. (Access point or “clean-out” installation is not part of coverage).
Q: Does the plan cover landscaping that may be needed due to repair work done on my property?
A: Yes. The plan includes up to $500 per year in reimbursement for backfilling, leveling, seeding and raking that are needed due to a covered outside sewer line repair.
