Being prepared for a water or sewer line break can save you thousands of dollars. What you might not realize is that most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover repair and replacement costs of underground water and sewer lines. You should check both your insurance policy and your local utility to determine where your insurance coverage ends and the city picks up responsibility. Most likely where the line exits your house and meets the water meter or sewer main is not covered by either side and the homeowner is left paying for these costly repairs.
