Could aging water pipes and sewer lines bust your budget?

Your PEMCO policy can protect you against damage from broken water pipes and sewer lines inside your home. Similarly, your utility company takes care of anything under the street. But did you know that you're responsible for repairing leaks in the pipes running between your home and sidewalk?

The first tipoff to trouble might be a soft spot in the lawn or, more likely, unusually high water bills.

If you think you're at risk for a broken line (for example, your neighbors have already had a problem or you have shifting soil or potentially invasive tree roots), you may want to consider water and sewer line insurance, now available in Washington. Call us or your local PEMCO agent. We can help you find $5,000 in coverage (enough for most routine repairs) for around $8 a month.
