Most homeowners aren’t aware that they own the outdoor water and sewer piping from the street to their house, or that they’re responsible for its maintenance and repair. Buried Utility Line Coverage is an additional option for homeowners that helps you cover the cost of repairs after experiencing an unfortunate event such as an underground water line leak. This optional coverage gives you the legendary service and dependability of AAA.
Your home deserves first-rate protection. As water, gas, and electrical service lines age and deteriorate, homeowners become vulnerable to expensive repairs that aren’t covered by most homeowner insurance policies. Buried Utility Line Coverage provides this important protection.
BURIED UTILITY LINE COVERAGE PROVIDES FOR DAMAGE INCLUDING LEAKS, BREAKS AND RUPTURES CAUSED BY:
• Mechanical breakdown
• Artificially generated electrical current
• Wear and tear, hidden decay and corrosion
• Ground freeze
• Root invasion
EXAMPLE OF LOSSES*
• A late freeze caused a buried water pipe to burst, requiring excavation to repair.
Total Loss: $3,700
• Root invasion led to the collapse of an underground sewer line. In addition to the sewer line repair, temporary living expenses were incurred by the homeowner.
Total Loss: $7,800
• Electrical arcing occurred in two underground conduits that provided home electrical service.
Total Loss: $10,000
