Do residents really need this coverage?
It is difficult to determine when a pipe may fail, with key contributors being the type of piping material, age of the service pipe, soil conditions and installation quality. The median age of homes in the U.S. is 36 years, and can be much higher in various parts of the country, which means many service pipes are functioning on borrowed time. Water line repairs can be costly, a replacement on average could exceed $2,500. Service plans are optional and up to the homeowner to decide based on their personal circumstances.
